Sooo, this will be the last day I do the dress and will try some different patterns...
The Dress I have been making for the last few days was this old standby...
Only change is the neckline, because the neckline is too low.
To make it long sleeve, I just take the sleeves from the jacket and inset them.... they fit perfectly on C D
There is only a front and back piece, and no facings.. just cut out and turn under the neckline, if sleeveless, just turn under the sleeveless edge and topstitch those. The hem, I just stop the side seams about 5 inches before the hem and turn under the slits to add a little flair and the hem is just a half inch turned under twice and top stitched. FAST AND EASY..
To calm down the very big colorful and loud prints I use... I add the flowing cardigans that I have come to love....
So comfy an outfit, and hides all my extra curves.
