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!
Total shot! All dressed up. Jolien’s (= the girl) mother made the cute little bag.
Shot of the lower back
Shot of the top part (I added extra strips of fabric to cinch in her waist (she is TINY) and make a nice bow at the back of the dress)
And here she is with her best friend shining and happy.
Oh, to be 18! (And I’m only 22, imagine!)
