New season of Project Run and Play has started!!!
I was not sure if I will be able to sew along, but this is one of my favorite parties, I had to try! The first challenge is Oliver + S Popover Sundress remix. It is a dress pattern that has been on my to-sew list for a while, so this challenge was a must do. I liked the simple & sweet A-line shape of the dress, so I did not want to change that. I decided to use a lightweight gauze fabric that was in my stash and make one last summer dress for this year.
I used white gauze, which was also in my stash, as the lining. It was cut 2 inches longer than the original pattern. I wanted gathers for the outer layer of green/blue gauze, so the pattern piece was widened. Then I thought it would be fun to have opening in the front, so the front piece was cut into two, with curves.
I also widened the front yoke piece to add gathers.
I originally made the shoulder straps wider, thinking bigger bows would be cuter. But they just did not seem right. When I attached back the straps, I made them narrower just like the original pattern.
I lost another night's sleep, but was able to finish the dress before Momo's visit to the zoo!
It was another hot day, and the summer dress was just what she needed. It is lightweight and flow-y, does not keep this little girl from running and jumping (she gets so excited when we visit the zoo...)
Linking up to those fun parties.
