|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…|
