The mash-up is complete! Hemmed, vent finished, lining slip stitched. All ready to wear out for the evening. There are one or two quirks, but if I don’t point them out, you’ll probably never notice…so I’m keeping my own counsel 😉
Inspiration struck yesterday and today I became certain of the way forward for the fabric and the frock. I’m going to take my first foray into a pattern mash-up…
So, I’ve taken the bodice and sleeves from Simplicity 1873 (same as the dress from last weekend) and the skirt from New Look 6184. Of course, there still wasn’t quite enough fabric, but I’m going to do the back as I thought last night, with a double layer of whatever cream fabric I choose for the lining – still pondering the idea of embroidery with the neon thread 🙂
Ever out together a pattern printed from a PDF? I don’t love…but found this sweet pattern on Peppermint Magazine’s site. Thinking of using the last of the blue chambray from the frock.
