Fashionable Fabrics sent us a "mystery fabric" to sew up however we wanted as long as we included a ruffle. I was so in love with the Pearl Bracelet in Hiho Silver. When I was thinking about the challenge, I had glanced over at the Aspen Ruffle Dress that I had all cut out and ready to sew. I thought how perfect would it be to re-mix a pattern by See Kate Sew for See Kate Sew?
Aspen Ruffle Dress was perfection to turn into the jacket and super easy to make the changes to. Here is how:
pattern. Then I added a ruffle to the sleeve edge by cutting a strip that was 2 inches wide and 2.5X the width of the sleeve edge. Then I folded the strip in half length wise and gathered along the raw edge. With right sides together I stitched the ruffle to the sleeve edge.
the pattern and then I cut the front down the middle so it would split for the jacket. Before starting on the neckline I hemmed the front edges so they would be finished. Then as the pattern instructs I finished the neckline with the bias tape only I folded over the edges at the front. (I also cut my own bias strip hence no fold lines)
the pattern has you do I made a casing only instead of elastic I slipped ribbon into the casing to tie along the front.
See Kate Sew patterns they fit perfectly, and they are so easy to use, even in a re-mix.
Pearl Bracelet Fabric, which works really well with the round cut out pocket which mimics the shape.
