Red Lace Shift

I used Dress 8 from one of my one of my japanese sewing books – Mama girl wardrobe (ISBN978-4-8347-2756-2)- as the base. But i changed up the pattern quite a bit. Here’s what i did: divided the bodice from the skirt panel at the low waist, cut the skirt part on the bias, raised the neckline and slimmed down the sleeve significantly. I also cut the tiers on the bias and left them and the bottom hem raw edged but sewed a stay stitch for stability.
At last, i stitched on the lace on the back – as an eye catcher.

    Well I only wish I could sit at mine more. I have 2 kids.. and work full time.. so my windows are pretty small. But I relish the weekend nights when the kids are in bed.. and I bust out the sewing machine.

    I am always inspired by someone who is willing to take the risk on altering a pattern! Nice work.

    Fellow Portlander!

    Isn’t the rain lovely?
