Rorschach Jenny

Added Feb 10, 2010

by nikkishell

Melbourne, Austr...






I made a size 36. I took the skirt in at the side seams and at the shoulder seams. I’m pleased with the fit after these adjustments, my previous Jenny skirts were a size 34 and are pretty snug. Any future Jenny’s will be made between a 34 and 36. I love this dress, i love the style, the fit and i love the fabric which is an Andiamo designer end, i love their fabrics!

Material Notes

Andiamo cotton/elastane from Tessuti Fabrics, Vintage buttons from my stash, invisible zipper

    This dress is really, really gorgeous. I liked the Jenny dress pattern well enough at first, but your dress makes me want to buy and make it, as in right this very minute. If I saw you on the sidewalk wearing this dress, I wouldn’t be able to stop staring, but in the best way.

    Love the fabric and the whole look of your Jenny version! Looks like you could dress it up and down, easily.

    Hi, I was wondering how much fabric you used for the dress. I want to make it but I am limited on fabric. Yours is fantastic.

    This is a great dress – I love the fit! Also I like your taste -I got some of this fabric too and made a top – but nothing like as glorious as your dress.
