Thousand Oaks, C...
The picture is horribly stretched out.
I found a pattern I loved in a McCall’s pattern book at Joanns. I bought some cotton fabric in down town L.A. The bottom of the skirt came with the detail, that part wasn’t me.
After I made the dress I took a walk around the mall, and found the exact same dress in Anthropology. Same pleating in the bodice and everything.
This dress has a zipper up the left side with boning in the front and back. I left the bottom unhemmed because I can’t hem to save my life.
The only problem with the pattern I used is that the measurements for chest/cup sizes are abnormal. I made the pattern according to what my size usually is, and it came out about 2 1/2 sizes too big. When I checked the measurements on the pattern they are different than normal, so if you find this pattern and use it, be sure to double check the measurements.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
