Sound of Music dress for my sister!

Portland, Maine,...






My sister has had long hair her whole life. This past year, she cut it all off and loves it! It is a short pixie cut and it she now has a lovely classic look. Her look reminded me of Julie Andrews from The Sound of Music. I wanted to make a dress for her inspired by one of the looks from the movie. I searched and found one that I thought would look great on her. Since we are sisters, we pretty much have the same body structure (she is a little smaller than me in the waste and I adjusted for that). I used a Made by Wendy dress pattern that I had already fit to my body for the dress. I found some amazing turquoise fabric that had flower stitching. I drafted a collar and made the sleeves longer. I really enjoyed making this for her.

Material Notes

cotton, lace.

      Thanks:) It is fun making variations on a dress once you make one. I will have to post the versions that I made for myself.

    Thanks! The Sound of Music dress even has fabric very similar. I was excited to find it.
