Angel City, Cali...
I was headed to the Egyptian Theatres Annual Tiki Party and needed something fast. I decided to use a Retro 47’ Butterick Pattern 5209. Since I am a size 22/24 dress I upsized the size 20 Misses pattern 1 size and used a four way stretch lycra fabric. I also altered the skirt from a full skirt to a more straight style with some draping on one sided to mimic a side tie. I was pretty pleased with the results.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
