Almost Mine Dress

Added Mar 1, 2011

by iCandyHandmade

Beach, Californi...






I took the Jennifer pattern (a loose blouse), and made it a fitted bodice. I took in the sides, added tucks and darts, and changed the sleeves. I made a muslin for the first time {ever} to make sure I got the fit right. Finally, I added the skirt and waistband. At the end, I got the fit totally wrong, so my friend Autie has a new dress!

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter

    Good job! I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you in the end, but I’m sure your friend is thrillled.
