Meredith was disappointed, I was disappointed but we decided to try a top instead. The fabric from Mood Fabrics is just too beautiful not to use.
I had enough yardage left and the skirt from the dress to make this pattern:
The top (dress view with shorter length) is cut out after making a muslin. I am not going to underline it, Meredith will wear a camisole and we are debating the cap sleeves.
So the bad, is I didn't get the graduation dress made. The good - I ordered 3 dresses from Penney's for Kaitlyn, so Meredith can pick from those. And another good, Meredith will wear the top lots more than a dress.
Off to make this top.
Has this happened to you? High hopes for a garment then in reality it just didn't work? Or the picture in your head isn't close to the actual garment?
