Amanda Plus Adapted

Added Feb 23, 2010

The only resemblance to Amanda is the pattern. Instead of the casing at the neck and waist, I added 13 pintucks to the front neck and 5 to the back neck. I added 4 darts at the back waist and 2 at the front. I would still like to take this in a little more, but I like it a lot better than the original. I want to do this kind of adaption again with a plainer fabric next time, and with a slightly different sleeve

Material Notes

John Kaldor cotton voile, thrifted.

    Like your take on the Amanda, wasn’t keen on the original, great redesign.
