Dress Like Your Grandma 2!

| No Comments

Here's the finished dress.  I changed things up a bit.  I left off the placket for one.  My dress is made out of shirting and chiffon.  The chiffon was a pain.  The pattern was Simplicity 6720 (vintage).  I'm glad I finished though.  Next year, I think I'll do Dress Like Your Grandpa.

 

Here's my failed attempt at a muslin.

 

If you only look at the top of the dress, it's not so bad.  I mean except for the awful attempt on my part at top stitching the collar which should never have been top stitched.
