I wanted to try the Twister dress for my daughter but didn’t want to buy fabric in case she ended up hating it. I went through my pile of giveaways and found a top to use. It wasn’t long enough for a dress, so we made it into a top instead. I couldn’t print out the pattern because I was out of ink, so I just laid her down on the outstretched top and outlined her body with chalk, cut it out and sewed it up. It is FAR from perfect, but she loves it and wants another done in black. So now I gotta get some black jersey fabric :)
I tried to link this to the original project, but I don’t see it in the drop down list :( So I listed under credits instead.

Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
