Description

This top is the practice round of a dress idea that I’ve been wanting to work on.

I used Elaine May’s Coffee Date Dress pattern to get started. I used the bodice front as is, but altered the back to have cutouts and buttons. I finished the edges with bias binding. The fit isn’t quite right and I don’t like the darts on the front, so I may go with a different pattern to make the actual dress.

I used some buttons and fabric that were already in my stash. I didn’t have enough fabric for a skirt, so I added the silly little peplum. The result: a shirt that looks like something I would have worn as a six year old… but it’s kind of fun too.

On my blog too! nattyjanesews.blogspot.com
