Week two is done and done! Let's see how long I can keep up the momentum!
Again here is the picture of a bunch of random fabric my mother sent me. Some of it is labeled, some of it is not. This weeks fabric is a white knit with red polka dots. I had a 1 yard plus 16" the width is 64" the fiber content is unknown.
My first instinct was to make a little sleeveless crop top but then I hadn't actually spent anytime with the fabric. When I picked it up to test the stretch I discovered it was only a two-way stretch not a four-way stretch.
It was then that I decided I was going to have to do something different. My first stop was Pinterest where I typed in in MOD Dresses I was looking through them and I thought, yeah, that'll do it.
Rummaging through my patterns looking for something suitable I came across McCalls 5512 which was almost perfect. When I went to lay it out I only made a few simple modifications.
The neck is SUPER Gathered so I cut that down a little bit, and then I added ten inches to the sleeve. Aaaaand I also cut a cuff out. I sewed this thing up according to instructions only adding the cuff to the sleeve.
Found these cute little buttons in my button drawer (yes I have a whole drawer dedicated to buttons) And then I took a million pictures with a bouffant and was oh so 60's!
