I’ve been doing some sewing and it feels so good!!!!! I have been working on a new schedule for myself and it’s working pretty good so far. I am managing to fit in everything I want to, within reason of course.
One thing I finally got around to was making a tutorial for this dress (see pic below) I made a while back. I know. I take forever sometimes. All in due time though 🙂
I decided to give it the name “The Ruffles Behind Dress.” It was inspired by an Anthropologie sweater dress from last winter. And I must confess, after I made it, I did try to see if it would fit me (well, before I put the ruffles on). Unfortunately, it didn’t fit.
So, I am definitely going to make me some shirts with the same idea behind it.
I just adore how it looks on my daughter. I made it a bit larger than the first one because I want it to last longer.
I used three old shirts of mine to create it, still trying to stick to the “don’t buy anything unless I absolutely have to” plan.
Let’s start by creating a pattern (or use one you already have).
*NOTE: You could make this part a lot easier and use a shirt that fits them already. Just cut off the sleeves and use that as a pattern. And cut down the sides of the shirt to make the other sewing parts easier. Leave the shoulders sewn together though and make sure to chop off the bottom half of the shirt.
