Here we go folks. Simplicity 7679. Check out the eyeliner on these chicas! Yowza!
It coulda been a mini.. but the vintage tablecloth (thrifted up about a month ago and soaked ever so long in Oxy-clean to get it wearable) didn't want to be cut short. And my legs aren't as adorable as I remember them being so the cute material is doing us all a big favor!
The pattern has this a really boxy cut so we had to "mod"-ify it ( did you gag a little on that pun? sorry.) with big major- inch deep in the middle- back darts and take in what would be long straight seams on the sides too.. ( I had a sewing buddy.. I was standing on a chair in the Green Kitchen, if you know what I mean. ( BTW: a good sewing buddy beats the heck out of any other sewing notion you can get your mits on. If you are going to try this at home... Get one if you can!)
Okay, Back to the dress:
Yeeesss.. Our alteration does mess with the lines, and essentially changes the design, but "as is" this pattern would probably only look really good on a broad shouldered size 2... or a hanger.
Now I have a little something extra because I am truly shameless and will do pretty much anything to entertain anyone who will come look at this little ol' blog o' mine.
And if that isn't enough!
We have a few new players... Check out:
