Yeah it is big and has its own strings, but it is a lot of fabric and it has cherries on it!! How cute are they?
As soon as I took apart the bodice from the skirt and ironed it.... This happened.....
Two little cats decided to "help" me. There is a reason why God made both of them so cute. She looked at me with those eyes and I could not get mad. Smile! Picture time.
After untangling the fabric again and ironing, I got my pattern picked out. Simplicity 1650, princess bodice, short skirt, no peplum with hopefully enough for sleeves.
I had just enough fabric for the bodice and the skirt. The sleeves I reused from the old sleeves.
Basically, sew, sew, sew, get an invisible 22 inch zipper- Hancock fabrics was out of black so I got red. Done! The bodice was perfectly fine and plenty of room but the skirt was just a smidge too tight but still fit.
I seriously love this dress. This pattern is also a good pattern. I just need to do more squats.
Like I said it just fit!! Yay!
This dress is way too cute! Who know it came from a mu-mu!! I still have the strings and buttons. Just a smidge, and I mean smidge left of the fabric is left. Yay!
