Sharing A Little Sew & Sew
OK, so I have has these fabrics in hopes of making E something for the 4th of July...
Well, here is sat for 2 months!!
I FINALLY got around to making her a Twirl Sundress!
Well, it looks a little plain and I know just what it needs...
First it needed Little E and then it needed a Chunky, Red Letter "E"!!!
Perfect and it will even look good as a top when she is a little older!!
So I have been seeing this project all over Pinterest for the Maxi Dress Tutorial
Looked SUPER easy...so I picked up this fabric...
I love turquoise!! It's so YUMMY!!!
So I followed all instructions and came out with this...(which I do not like)
I had to shorten because a 5'1" girl with curves looks ridiculous in something that is so long!
It left so much fabric around the waist that it didn't seem to fit right.
**I did make the belt and I love it!! I will for sure put it to good use!**
OK, so I pondered over the dress a little and decided to make some changes to see if I could save it...
I took out a tank and used it as a guide to slim the fabric down and then remove the funky looking sleeves. I also curved the neck line so it wasn't a big "V".
Here is the result:
I will actually wear this now.
All in all, I salvaged a Pinterest Fail into a Pinterest Perfect (for me anyway).
It will even make a cute through on to go to the beach or the pool!!
So, Wednesday was a Sew-Sew day as well as I fed my OCD for the day!!
