Seersucker Dream - V8723

Added Apr 19, 2013

Stone Mountain, ...






Bought this pattern for myself at first and decided that it was probably a little to girly for me ….. so I decided to make it for my daughter instead. I used a cotton striped seersucker for the dress and the reverse side of a watermelon colored satin to make the sash.

I ended up removing about 4 inches from the bodice and losing the front and back darts to get a better fit for my daughter. When I first showed her the pattern….I don’t think that she liked it, but once it was finished and she saw the fun colors and sash she changed her mind.

Material Notes

Dress – 100% cotton seersucker;

    I really do love the full skirt because it is very girly but I am not so sure that this look becomes me right now. Funny how I am 42 years old and still trying to figure it out. You seem to have a pretty good handle on what looks good on you.

    Thanks liliv, She is only 11 but growing so fast! There is not much out there to be bought that fits both her body and age.

      She is lucky to have a mother who can sew cute dresses for her! But I think that this pattern will be nice for you as well
