My daughter had grown out of her party dress, but the full skirt material was beautiful. I saw Angela Kane’s Denim Pinafore dress and adjusted the pattern for the little material I had. The pattern was easy to adjust because it was a classic shape. I chopped off the straps at the front using a ribbon as a halter neck. At the back made it lower and straight across. The bodice needed making shorter and narrower and I adjusted these as per Angela’s excellent video instructions. I used many small pieces of material which I joined where the darts would be. I put the zip at the side. I then lined it. I have left a little bit of growing room, hoping it will last till Autumn!
The material was from an old Party Dress.
