Description

This is another version of the Built by Wendy 3835 pattern. I probably should have used a bit heavier/stiffer fabric. Also, I think I cut the pattern too small(?) so I adjusted the sleeve with a slit and I didn’t want to attach a zipper so I made a slit on back too. Didn’t put in button yet! Added some ruffles to the bottom. Somehow it still looks like it lacks something. Maybe add a flower pin?

Overall, the minidress was not a fun to make especially with this soft fabric!

Material Notes

flannel (?) soft fuzzy fabric

    I really like the dress. I think that the dress is not lacking anything, but i would definitely get rid of the ruffle and make it a bit shorter to add it a bit of a va va voom. And maybe try some red accessories to go with it, red pin would be nice. You have done an amazing job though.

    Cute cute cute! I love the ties on the sleeves especially. I’m jealous; the BBW patterns haven’t been released where I live.

    I think your flower pin is a cute addition :o)
