Got this super flowery fabric and wanted to make it into a beautiful dress for the girls. Due to bright colours in fabric I toned it down a little with black fabric added to bodice and hem. I then added two peach buttons to the bodice for added detail.
Made the dress a bit longer than necessary because the girls don't need another dress but I just cant get over sewing for them!! So in a years time it will still be their size
Bodice is standard bodice I self drafted.(I found the fit better than the commercial pattern fit) Used 3/4 sleeves adapted from a regular sleeve pattern. I find that most commercial sleeve patterns fit very well into various armholes, both for ladies and children.
The skirt is cut with a slant to the sides to give it a more full look as opposed to just gathering a rectangle long fabric.
Thanks for stopping by.
