Versatile and Amazing

I'm so happy I finally got to sew this one! I made it for Halloween and was in a time crunch. This is HUGE because I am really slow. I finished in just a few hours (would normally take me a span of several days!) This pattern is so versatile- I was a pin up girl for the halloween costume but a cardigan added made it a fun Minnie inspired costume. We are going on a Disney cruise and I will be wearing it again. I will also be making more for everyday wear for this summer. I just feel so pretty in this flawless design. Such a quality and easy to follow pattern.

1st thing I've ever made for ME!

This is the 1st thing I've ever made for me. I made an xl according to the pattern, kinda. I tried on the top before adding shirring to make sure it fit correctly and it was already snug. No shirring needed. I was right in line with the time, I'll make the back piece wider. I used the halter straps and crossed them in the back. I added buttons and button holes.

This dress is through adults love this dress. A very quick sew, and you can make this dress as simple or as fancy as you'd like. With so many options there is no creative limit with this pattern! Roll the hem and you won't have to measure and iron the hem of the circle skirt making it so quick, add an underskirt if you're in a sassy mood!
