I recently found the show “Pushing Daisies,” (although it has long since been cancelled), and I was thoroughly entranced by all of the clothing. The character of Chuck has inspired many fellow seamstresses, I’m sure, and I couldn’t keep my mind off of one particular dress. The “Chuck Dress,” as my husband now refers to it, was constructed using two patterns. The top bodice was very loosely designed around Burdastyle’s Jenny; Variation D, dress pattern. The only detail that remained after all of the altering, however, was the front overlap. The skirt half was taken from vintage Simplicity 4298. I ended up using a vintage sheeting fabric, which was wonderfully soft and, not to mention, so much more cost effective. I also made a fabric covered belt, using a belt and buckle kit that I found on Ebay.
