Spotty Dots

November 28, 2009
This is the last dress I will make for a while. I go on holiday to Melbourne tonight and once I get back I will have to settle back into working to save enough money for my next year uni fees.

This dress came from Butterick Pattern B4792 and it came with a full circle stating from the waist. I have a pretty high waist so I thought it might make me look a bit stout so I dropped it by using the top of a wiggle skirt pattern and adding a gathered skirt just above the hip. It was very flattering but my fun 50’s dress had turned into an ugly 80’s dress! What to do? I ended up out of desperation for time just scrapping the full skirt and making it into a wiggle. Oh, well. Next time!
