Navy/Red Malissa's Malissa Variation

Added Mar 19, 2010

Haysville, Kansa...






I had gotten this fabric off a “Stash Bash” table or at a sewing guild garage sale and thought it would make a beautiful dress. It looks to be a men’s tie print polyester. i know I promised a how to the last time I posted this variation and it’s almost ready to post just need a few more pics.

    I love this pattern and how it lends itself to variation. Thank you for you instructions. You should at a “make-it” tag to your project. Any hints on achieving the bubbly? I assume you lined with with a shorter, narrower piece to get the hem to bubble.

      Because I added the instructions at a later time for some reason it didn’t update. I put elastic in the hem to draw up and make the bubble.

      Cool, I posted several days ago but it didn’t show up in techniques so I thought I would spread the word.

      Thanks, that pattern is so easy to alter. I did the sketches for the original Malissa. It wasn’t exactly as I imagined it but it still a wonderful dress to play with.

      Thanks, that’s actually one of the photographers’ bathroom, we were there for the shoot. We had 10 models total that 12 hour day. The whole wall is done in the gradation of color it’s really cool.
