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!
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!
She would like sleeves though, so I thought this pattern would be suitable.
What do you think? Will this pattern do the trick?
