While I was helping my son sew his kimono for Halloween, an idea/project formed.  And rather than filing it in the back of my mind for future reference, I decided to just make it now!  I used the same stash fabrics as the kimono, and tried out sewing pattern Simplicity 2212 which I had bought because I might need to sew some dresses for a wedding in a few months.  Unfortunately, I forgot that patterns are made standard for a B cup, which my daughter is not!  So after quite a bit of fiddling, the bust fit, but the whole thing ended up snug.  So she'll only be able to wear it for a few months, but it turned out how I pictured it and she got compliments at church yesterday.



Other than the "lesser bust adjustment," I tweaked the pattern by laying out the stripes in different directions on the bodice pieces, added black piping at the top and bottom of the bodice, and put on straps.



I did have to run to the store to buy a zipper.  Those hold me up every time!

It is a very pretty dress, and I like the effect from letting the stripes go in different directions.

Great job on the dress.  I'm amazed how you got the angles of the stripes to work so well together.  I'm kind of scared of striped fabric, though.

Love the dress,especially the contrast gores and straps,at first glance I thought it was strapless. Your daughter looks like she was having fun modelling  Grin
I'm about to start on charity winter hats for the local school kids,it got cold very fast here.

I love the detail of the piping...and that you turned the stripes in two directions!  Nice!

So, I've had this turkey kit for the past two Thanksgivings and I wasn't about to let it sit around unmade for a third. I got out my hot glue gun and only 10 minutes later, I had this cute little guy:



And while the glue gun was out, I used up some felt I had laying around and made some bows to use for the upcoming holidays:
