I've recently learned how to sew. I'm not that great, but I'm getting better, thanks to my mother-out-law. With her help and a quick trip to Goodwill, I made this dress for Lorelai.
It was a man's dress shirt. The only material I bought was the coordinating material for the pleated part at the top and around the skirt.
I also ventured out and made some bloomers without a pattern. They turned out pretty decent. Wearable, at least!! That's a bonus!
And no, I didn't do button holes and buttons....that was the front of the man's shirt. Cool, huh? I used this pattern. For those of you wondering if I first put the straps on wrong, you're so funny.
But, I DID follow the original instructions and THIS is how the sleeves/straps turned out. Then I modified and came out with the final product. Star Trek much?
