Description

I made this dress for my sister Jackie. I kind of forced it on her, but its always nice to make dresses for other people. Its a variation of the Anda. I gathered the shoulders and there is a seam going down the back. I hope she likes it.

Also, I bought this fabric super on sale and I was totally in love with it. I have enough left over to make a skirt for my super mini friend.

Material Notes

Polyester/Silk-Feeling Blend with Yellow Chinese Dragons Set ontop of Royal Blue Background. There are some orange flowers dancing around.

      I stiched in the ditch of the shoulder seam. I just took a needle & thread and did long runnign stitches in the ditch of the seam. I then pulled the thread taught so the shoulder gathered up. I then tacked the shoulder into place. It was super easy. I hope that helps.
