The Simple Red Dress12:52 PM
I did it... I helped someone sew. Gee. I didn't think I could do it... especially since that person was my sister!
This dress was a nice and easy 5 pieces. Very managable especially since there were really only 3 pattern pieces. My sister did the main parts of the construction... I did the more detailed and harder parts like the hems, darts, and sleeves.
We added in an elastic band in the middle. Here the top is too poofy but you get the point.
It's still a bit long but it does work. The dogs approved of it. We want to hem it a bit shorter so it can be used in the fall with leggings or tights and boots.
There was a bit of a bulge in the back since I didn't stretch the elastic enough in the beginning.
All in all, it's a pretty darn good dress! And better yet, it will fit both of us!
