Meet Happy Girl! In another post I'll have to tell you how this name came about. This post gives you more of an idea of what the new sewing pattern will look like! This is not the cover. This is actually a test of the changed pattern pieces and of course I used my good fabric when I told the testers not to on their testing :) Thank God it fit! I have not hemmed the bottom yet and I added "faux" which sounds better than "fake" buttons. They are actually drawn in :) This dress was originally inspired by the 1920's drop waist dress but when I tested it the dress made my daughters shape look so funny. As one tester said and she was so right, "it looks mermaidy". So I came back and raised the waist a little higher and changed the front and back top band. The bottom panel of the dress is pleated with a subtle femininity of side ties. It also has a pretty scallop and ric rac accent on the front of the dress. It is hard to see the details from this picture.
Anyway, it is at the testers right now and I believe I can have this one ready in the next 12 days! Again, all of my patterns are designed with the beginner in mind!
Wouldn't this make the sweetest Easter dress with a matching Boutique Easter Basket!! ;)
