Azelea pattern recycled

Before I move on to another project, I just could not resist to use this pattern again. I used the lower dress pattern, trimmed off the sides and placed two pockets in front. It’s a comfy everyday dress.

    Zora: I trimmed off 2 inches from each side front and back – from the hemline only, curved off the hemline to the measurment on the waist with a curve ruler. The pattern of the lower dress is too wide at the bottom and my fabric is not that soft to flow at the bottom.

    That’s looks great. I love the details on the pockets.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Craftdinner: This fits in 2 yards of fabric since the sides were trimmed off and it’s about 2 inches shorter. The fabric used was extra linen I had, but I would have liked it in cotton though.

    I love how you’ve altered it. The pockets are great.

    Excellent Version! I like the Azalea dress but the upper dress will not work on me; it’ll make me appear too busty. I was thinking of lower the top dress to below my bust line but I like your idea of using just the bottom dress. A square neckline is very flattering and your pockets are a great detail. Thanks for the inspiration MYK!

    It does look very comfortable! I like how you make two so different creations from the same pattern…
