my take on a 4 sleeve dress
for pattern magic 3
now.. i don’t really own the book
so i pretty much tried to figure out construction
from an illustration i found online
and from kazz’s and carolyn’s posts
i decided to alter upper sleeves
cause the version i drafted first looked a bit odd
(drafting may not be the right word for the process
i just cut fabric, constructed gray part of the dress
and then tried it on, watched it in the mirror, decided what i don’t like
and remove it.. then tried it on again.. and repeat that circle many times
until i was satisfied with how it looked)..
so.. my advice to those that wan’t to make this dress: buy a book, it’s easier
but maybe not as fun as my method :)
i really love the dress
it’s insanely comfy.. and warm
and moves great.. and is very versatile, a perfect travel dress, as it can be worn
in several different ways
i also made leggings, not that you can really see them though
see more pics on my blog mokosha
for the dress – gray and navy heavy weight jersey, from remnants box (those white lines on fabric are some odd seams that were the reason why fabric was in remnants box.. instead of cutting them off, i decided to use them as a decorative seams
leggings – some sort of mesh fabric, with old hollywood movie’s print, that was originally a dress i wore in high school
