The battle is over!

It started off bad.  I wanted a dress like my mom and aunt.  I wanted it out of this fabric (100% Rayon, which I love) and I thought I could alter this pattern to what I wanted.  That’s when my problems started.  If you missed it, you can read about it here.

 

 

So forget about the dress!  I managed to salvage as much of the fabric as I could and I made a top instead.  

Last week, I got it almost finished, there were just a few odds and ends left, like the neckline and front opening facing.

Ohh! pretty buttons!  Which one should I choose!

Of course, the orange one!

I fused some interfacing on the hem, front and back, to add some body, and “rolled” the back hem up 1/4 ” twice.

In the front I rolled up the hem 1″, then 1″ again.

I love the result.  The hem is split at the sides and high in the front and low in the back.

Sunny outside shots.  I love how the sleeves turned out!

Ok, I managed to pull this one out of the fire.  Yipee!

Next up?  Border Prints!  My sister has chosen the fabric for her next dress – 100% cotton.  I love border prints!

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

So, I’m back to my “Sister’s Sewing Projects”.  She would like a dress in this style.  Don’t you love the photo quality – taken right off the TV! 

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

She would like sleeves though, so I thought this pattern would be suitable.

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

What do you think?  Will this pattern do the trick?

Happy Sewing!
