Look #2 from Five and Ten Designs Volume 1.
I drafted the bodice pieces based on size 2T width and 4T length, following the pattern instructions. It turned out very loose fitting on Momo, but I believe this design is meant to be this loose. Momo will fit into this next year, but I am afraid the length will not be enough. I would have made it longer if I had just a little bit more of this fabric...
This double gauze is double sided, with small dots print on the back side. I picked this ruffle top pattern so that the ruffle would show the dot side. I also used the dot side for the back straps, but this side was not suitable for any other larger parts, since the panda faces can be seen through.
I made the back opening smaller than the pattern suggestion, but still it is pretty wide open. If I make this top again, I will make the back opening even more smaller. I am just not comfortable Momo showing too much of her back.
I cut my ruffle pieces a little shorter than what was suggested due to the limited fabric, but I think it worked okay because I was making the back opening smaller.
I am not completely happy with the dress, but I am sharing it anyway to introduce you my new photographer ;)
I used a free pattern I found online to make this maxi dress, but not disclosing the source for now, because I had some issues... The printed out pattern pieces did not match, and there were lines that did not make sense drawn on them. Rather than quitting on it, I went ahead and made this dress because I thought it is still better than drafting something from a scratch myself. I used the pattern lines that looked "right" to me to connect the pieces, rather than the page frames.
Because of the issues I had with the pattern, I am thinking it may not be fair to post the link here. I sure appreciate the designer to come up with the pattern and offer as a free pattern. And I think this is still a very workable pattern, with willingness to adjust and modify it. If anyone wants to know the link, I will reply emails...
Momo suddenly decided to pretend to be a wedding photographer, and asked me to pose with my hubby, pretending that he was there and standing right next to me. She wanted to take our kiss shot... hence the photo above. I made sure no one was around looking at us, and posed as Momo requested...more like demanded...
Linking up to those fun parties.
