Remember this dress?
I finally finished it up with the bodice from the original pattern.
I like it a lot better now. It is not the best time of year to finish up a summer dress, but the bodice is very wide and it will fit my daughter for sure next year so I'm not too worried about it.
A couple things--I didn't have enough of the right interfacing so I used muslin instead of interfacing the bodice. I don't know if I would recommend that but it worked out ok for now. I also didn't do the straps exactly as recommended in the pattern, but they turned out just fine as well.
The pattern is from Ottobre Design 3/2006, #22. My daughter likes it, a lot!
