So a few months back I fell in LOVE with this dress… Mini Boden 60′s Baby Dress
But $72 for both plus shipping is just out of my buget! SOOO last night I finally got around to drafting my own pattern! I have never drafted my own pattern for something that had so much style. Most things I have done have just been rectangles & sqaures. Anyways it took me about 1.5 hours to draft the pattern & probably about 1 hour total to sew. Anyways please ignore all the blue marks & discolorations… it is the marker that washes out, I was just to excited & had to take a picture NOW.
The pleats on the original dress where different, but I didn’t make the front panel big enough to do them the same, but I think I actually like my pleats better! Anyways here it is!!!
I know the buttons look wonky, it is a 6-12m & so it barely fits on the white body thing so the one shoulder was laying kinda weird. I didn’t realize it was messed up until after I took & downloaded the pics. I will take better pics after I wash & press it. I just used white muslim since this was the test dress & I didn’t expect it to come out so well!
I plan on making them each 2 more… one that is red with big white polka dots & then another out of a vintage sheet.
