sundress with button on collars

By on April 2, 2012

 Using this super cute anne adams(date?) pattern I just got off Ebay and with the OWOP in mind I made up three version off this dress(one a shirt)and two reversible collar and a bolero.I made the first dress out of twill with a bit of stretch,didn’t put a zipper in this one its a pull-on(barely).The round collar needed help,to big and didn’t fasten so I added a hook and eye,I should add a little ribbon or something because it turns around and makes a cute little cape.I see myself making many of these collars with embroidery,beaded, ect.Different verzion of the dress,colors and style.Have a more pics on my bloghttp://ladymideva.blogspot.com/
