Description

I made this dress as a gift for my future Mother In Law, she is throwing me a bridal shower. I’m so excited and I hope she likes this dress. Since I wasn’t sure of her exact measurements, I picked a pattern that has an elastic waist. This pattern is perfect because it has a great shape, is a simple design, but has some special elements like the neckline, the bow at the waist and the yoking. My future mother in law loves the color red, long sleeves and a long hemline. The only thing I did was to make the dress about 8 inches longer than the pattern.

Material Notes

A synthetic polyesther blend with a crinkled texture, and 3/4" elastic.

    Here’s to a great relationship with your MIL. She’s quite fortunate to have a new family member who makes her clothes as gifts. It’s a lovely shade of red, you did a fine job of work. Nehmah
