Coolum Beach, Au...
For my daughter’s graduation I adapted Style pattern. It had a long full skirt and seperate bodice. The bodice was also typically a curved shape and Sabrina wanted a straight cut bodice. For the first time ever I made a ‘dummy’ in calico…so I could get a good fit. Loving blue as much as she does, Sabrina chose a pale blue rose patterned cotton lawn for the skirt, so we teamed it up with a navy blue cotton voile. When I cut the bodice a touch short, I had to get creative with the cornflower blue voile. I think it came out quite good. I think she was happy with the end result.
