Here was my inspiration:
This is a Lilblueboo dress I find cute.
And here is what I made:
And I am never going to sew something without a pattern ever again. LOL! This was hard. I used a bit of an Ottobre pattern to fashion the sleeves but otherwise I built this dress on my 7 year old daughter's body and she was not happy with my pinning! I also did not trust my serging abilities to make the tiers serged on the outside, as LLB does, so I serged them on the inside as well. I used rib knit for the red and turquoise and I am happy with that choice as I like the weight of it and the feel of it. My daughter says it is a very cute and comfy dress and that is all that matters.
Now back to sewing with Ottobre! More later...........
