|We got hit with some constant rain storms so we moved our garden party indoors and had some fun catching pretend butterflies and dancing in falling confetti instead.|
Do you want to make your own garden party frock?
Great let's get started.
|I used a tank that fits my little one to create the bodice pattern I made two front pieces.|
|Then I cut one shoulder off the two front pieces.|
|Then I cut one back piece. (see how the front pieces over lap)|
|Now for the crinckle crepe fabric that I used as my overlay I wanted it gathered so I lined up one side and cut it out tracing the under-arm.|
|Then I moved the piece down on the fabric and cut out the rest.|
This makes it much wider than the base.
|Start by gathering the overlay to fit the base.|
I used a basting stitch then pulled to gather. (this is the back) then sew the overlay to the base at the neckline and underarm.
|Same basic idea with the front pieces only you will be doing it to both pieces.|
|Then turn the pieces right side out and you should have nice finished edges along the neckline and underarm|
|next gather the bottom of the the overlay so that it matches the base as well.|
Just pin it in place for now.
|Now we will sew the front and back bodice pieces together. With right sides together sew the shoulders and side seams.|
|Then you have a feminine puffy bubble wrap dress perfect for a garden party|
|Or at least the chance to dance in some confetti while you wait for the rain to pass...|
