Description

well, I learned how to make bra cups while making this dress- I cursed quite a bit :)
but I think it gets easier! I don’t think the fabric was the best choice, and the dress itself is too big. I really enjoyed making the romper from this pattern so much more. The cups need more shaping, I added darts.
I really love the scalloped hem. Maybe I’ll make this again someday- I’d recommend a soft fabric.

    I love the funky print! I love that it tones down the super girly-ness of the pattern. The scallops are fabulous.

    I am deathly afraid of prints, but I actually really like the print you chose! It’s really cute!

      well, it’s kind of a scary print! I tried fading the fabric but to no avail! I found the fabric at a yard sale, so it was perfect for a learning project :)
