Melissa's One Night Stand

Added Feb 3, 2010

by Passiona Cottee

Sydney (Inner We...






Left work, had dinner, got home, made a Melissa.

She’s a little racier than the pattern. Taken in generously at the knees and sits low on the hip (instead of a high waist – achieved by using the length of skirt provided in the pattern with a thin waist band turned inside).

This is a great pattern to make, try on, take in, try on, take in a little more, then go out on the town… all in one night.

Material Notes

Cotton poly double knit with lace feature




Garment Type
Evening Wear, Romantic, Victorian
Cotton, Polyester

    Wow – that IS fast! I wish I could complete things as quick as that!!! Go girl!!! That fabric is really cool – did the lace come with it or did you put it over the top of the knit? Love the green tights!

      I am glad you like it. I went to the fabric store for a completely different reason (the pink and red project) and came home with this lovely lace overlayed on a knit.

      Thanks! The lace is a real weave, not a print, which is great.
