Happy Monday guys !! Its time to rise and grind !!!
I\’m still enjoying my summer break for a few more weeks and we are now in full on R&R time !!
If you have been following me on instagram you know that my son has been in Germany for the past 3 weeks visiting family and really enjoying the beautiful country !
So, once I got over him leaving 🙂 I was able to get my sewing MOJO back !
With this dress I just decided to have fun with it ! I thought of the design AFTER I bought the fabric . Usually it works the other way around ,but this time I LOVED the fabric when I saw it so I bought it!
Pattern used :
I picked this pattern because I liked how the bodice of the dress was made . I knew that I would be making a few adjustments to it because I wanted a longer shirt dress.
Here are some of the alerations that I decided to make on the dress:
I used that skirt pieces given and extended them the length that I wanted . I decided to changed the hem of the skirt so give it a flare ..
To vent the sleeves I folded the pattern in half and added 5/8 to each side
I then cut the two sided separately
I had a total of four pieces when i finished … Two for each arm
I joined them together at each in and sewed down 1 inch
I then pressed open the top and bottom and did a rolled him on the vents !
Here is how they looked before I connected them
I love how the dress turned out and just to add MY spin on it I decided to pair it with my Originals !
Cool , Summery and Chic!!!
Until Next Time !!
