Redrafted Dress #2 from Drape Drape 2, made to fit my daughter.
You didn’t really think that Grumbles would allow her mum to have a snazzy Drape Drape 2 dress and not get in on the action herself, did you?
The pattern was easy to redraft for Grumble’s size – I simply found a singlet pattern in an old copy of Ottobre Magazine, and used it as the foundation. The fabric was left over from making this top. Austerity crafting at its best!
The only downside is that as soon as Grumbles sees me in my Drape Drape dress, she races downstairs and dons hers. And then proceeds to tell every aquaintance that we meet that we’re wearing the same dress. It’s a tad too matchy-matchy for my liking, but heaven help me – I wouldn’t kill her buzz for the world.
