The Frugal Danielle
Added Mar 20, 2010
This was actually a muslin I made up in some cheap jersey fabric (1.5m for $1 at the thrift store!) before attempting the Danielle pattern in satin for my “Run to the Hills” project.
I’ve found lately that if I make something according to my measurements on the size chart, it usually tends to be way too big. So I thought I’d try making it a 36 despite fitting measurements of a 38. I also raised the neckline about 2 inches so my bra wouldn’t show and altered the sleeves so they weren’t poofy – and it turned out great!
It’s a really nice casual dress that I can wear to work or just for bombing around town on the weekends. Since the fabric was $1, and the pattern was free, I’d say this is a frugal creation!!! :-)
