well, i decided that i love sewing now. this is my favorite dress! sailboats, airy cotton, and as comfortable as pajamas..what more do you need. i have been working on learning how to sew my own wardrobe and this one turned out so well i think i'll make a few. i'm already planning one in white.
i used McCall's pattern m6275, which is a child's dress pattern (i have very mature tastes) and made it in one of the larger sizes. then i just added 2 inches to the length of both the bodice and skirt. and also took in the sides of the bodice a little so it wasn't quite so boxy,but still roomy. and bam, a dress for a grownup.
my sewing education time is short, but i'm hoping to fit in a few more dresses, next up is some cute vintage girls fabric i got for my birthday!
dress: made by me! fabric from joann's, basket bag: thrifted, shoes: target, bike: i think walmart!
