Description

Zoe 8123B is actually the first full pattern clothing I’ve ever made (before I did Idit), unfortunately, I did my first one with flannel…which was a total disaster because the pattern size did not fit me at all. I got hump back and pooffy belly. Until this day, I have little motivation to rip off the zipper and fit it to myself. (I wonder how it fit the model so well…)
Anyway…Here is a modified Zoe with easy cap sleeves. I fitted the back and tried to add the bust darts, but, as you see, I may still have to make a bit of adjustment cuz the belly part can fit more. (any suggestions would be very welcomed)
Still trying to find a good blue satin to make a belt for it!

    Thanks everyone, and Britlitgal, " too lazy to fix it" is totally what I’m feeling for that dress…:p

    Absolutely cute, I like your sleeves and your fabric! I like it better without the scarf. I’ll have to make one for my daughter.

    AAAAHHH!! I am totally adoring this dress! The sleeves really make it for me, as well as the print. Well done. I laughed when you talked about removing the zipper…hee hee! I am a total perfectionist while I sew, but if I notice something wrong when it’s done, forget it! I am too lazy to fix it, unless it’s meant for someone else. Anyway, it’s gorgeous.
