Danielle caca d'oie

Added Mar 5, 2011

Castlerock, France






This is my second dress, a variation of Danielle made in yellow cotton.
I had to change back because my zipper was too short and that I will not have the patience to wait to buy a new… So I shrunk back and I kept part of the initial model to create a cutout and finally I added a button. Sewing invisible zipper was the longest and most instructive step… : )

Material Notes

cotton, zipper, elastic

    Very neat idea. I’ve been in many a situation where I didn’t have the right size zipper. Now I know what to do!

    I think it looks great! As soon as I have a little more time and the right fabric/pattern for it, I’ll try to make one myself. Including your cutout at the back ;)

      I forgot to mention that I also changed the neckline making it deeper. I’ll try to explain how I modified the back by a little drawing.
