Miami, Florida, ...
This was pretty simple to make!I used knit fabric.
First off, I left out the sleeves completely, and just flipped the armhole seam allowance under and top-stitched, to finish the edge. I then made a new neck piece – I measured my neck and then made a rectangle on a piece of paper the length of my neck (marking center front, shoulder seams, and center back, and added seam allowance) with some extra length added to tie the neck piece at the back.This rectangle will be the neck pattern piece. I sewed the new “collar” to the neckline and then cut down center back about 2 inches to allow the extra string length on both sides be tied, and tightened if needed. I also sewed down the neck pleats, and rhinestone studded the neck piece. The length of the dress was also shortened by four inches.
