I wanted to make a dress similar to Liesl’s dancing dress from The Sound of Music…Ok, let me be more specific; I wanted to make a dress that was a very easy, very wearable nod to her dress!
So I set about making Kwik Sew 3675 for the 4th time
I made a simple modification to the pattern to get the desired effect:
Lengthen the skirt (1 – 1.5"). Sew the bodice to the skirt as per instructions. Add to additional elastic channels at evenly spaced intervals below the original elastic.
Insert elastic to the channels and adjust elastic lengths.
Finish all elastics as per the instructions.
This dress gets WAY more attention than it deserves when I wear it. It is just as comfy as a nightgown but the extra 2 elastics make it look very dressy.
I am wearing a slip made from the same material pulled WAY up to sit under the lowest elastic.
