Finally something I made again!

I was asked to make a graduation party dress for a 18-year old girl that plays in the band at the church my mother goes to.
She sent me some pictures and I immediately thought of Cambie as a base pattern.

I addapted the pattern by adding an extra layer in chiffon. I ruched the top and altered the back so it would hit her a little lower (as she asked!)

This is also the reason I haven’t made something for myself (this and the other graduation party dress I made for my boyfriends sister and the costume I am making for someone… Pictures will hopefully show up sooner or later :-))

So here are some pics!

Oh, to be 18! (And I’m only 22, imagine!)
