Play Dress

A few months ago I purchased the Sienna Dress Pattern from lilblueboo and finally got around to making it. I decided to practice with my OLD t-shirts so I wouldn't ruin new cute ones if I made a mistake. I ended up using 3 different ones-The top of the dress is a Paul Frank shirt I bought and wore out forever ago, the brown skirt is an old Quicksilver shirt, and the blue one was my friend's little boy's school shirt. They coordinated pretty well I think. I thought this dress was going to be a lot harder to make than it was. When I first took a look at the pattern I was totally intimidated because I'm not very experienced when it comes to following a pattern. I still changed things a bit and did things the way they made sense to me, but stuck to the pattern as much as possible. I decided not to add the neckline because once I was trying it on her without it, I thought it looked cute, almost 80'sish the way the knit neckline rolled up. Also the hole was a little too tight for her head, LOL! I guess if we're being honest,hahaa! I was going to fix it, but like I said, I ended up liking it without the neckline. This is definitely a play dress since the t-shirts I used aren't new, but I'm excited to tackle this dress again using new shirts :) Hopefully there will be more to come in the near future...

I love that you are brave enough to just try these things...and then whenever it doesn't work out, you manage to fix it and end up with something cute.

Most impressive, my dear! And I wish I had your moxie!!
