If you have a mom like mine she may have saved a tonne of clothes for you when she was younger thinking hey maybe my future baby will like this. While some outfits have been in-style, some are not like this floral print dress. However, flower patterns are in season so I have created a fast upgrade. I loved the neckline and open areas near the armpit. It was low wasted so I brought the center waste up to the v in the neckline. Then attached the waste-line to the corners of the armpit. I dont own a dress form so I put the dress on so I could pin down and shape the bust as desired. I did not do any sticking to the back just simply add some extra ribbon I had chose a length I liked for tying the back. I sewed the ribbon into the side seams. Then your ready to go. If you have any questions, or need assistance message me and I will get back to you asap!
