Santa Rosa, Cali...
Found some pastale yellow fabric and wanted to practice the pattern for my Halloween costume. I had to make a lot of alterations. First the length of the bosdice had to be increased. I had to add to the bodice and skirt at the side seams, and the elastic. The shoulder straps call for ribbon, but since I’m in dire need of a trip to the craft/fabric store I just used some lace trim and tubing. Considering that I could not find my iron this dress isn’t half bad. I’m not a fan fo the color, but it turned out alright.
