Another Pattern Remix

Pattern Remix Me Sew Crazy Spring Fever Dress 023



Here is my version of Me Sew Crazy's Spring Fever Dress! None too soon, the linky party opened yesterday at Project Run & Play!



Here is a picture of the original dress.







Here are some more pictures of MY version!

This was also my first attempt at covering buttons. It was SO much easier than I thought it would be! :D

I printed out the pattern in the largest size available and then set to making it a size 8.

Here are my pattern pieces upped to size 8.  (Please excuse the messy writing!)

I changed the back of the original dress to the front, left off the sleeves, and changed the skirt quite a bit. Instead of having 4 ruffles for the skirt I have one over a regular skirt. ;) I didn't mix it up a whole lot but I think I did enough to make it MY way.

Here are my pieces all pinned and ready to sew!!!



I had thought about using some of the eyelet trim for sleeves but then thought it might be a bit too much.... Still not sure about that. LOL



So, there it is! I hope you like it!!!



In other sewing news, I am STILL waiting on my shipment from Joann's. GRRRR! Amazon is sooooo much faster! I ordered the owl pellets, Magic School Bus Electricity kit and 2 books a few days AFTER ordering from Joann's and the Amazon shipment got here days ago! SIGH......

  1. I love this dress remix. It reminds me of the dresses I made for my daughter back in the day. She like a ruffle, but not too many and pink was her favorite. Cailey is getting prettier by the day. Quite the accomplished model.

  3. I am waiting for fabric to, from fabric.com. I ordered a beautiful dragonfly print fabric to do this remix in and I hope that it arrives on time. I even started a blog just so I could participate in this remix (and some other sew alongs). I am not sure yet if I want to try to increase the pattern to a size 6 for my daughter or make it in a size 5 for my niece.

  4. Oh! That stinks!!! WHY are they so slow????
    It should be fairly easy to adjust it to a size 6. You could always do 2! LOL ;)
    GOOD LUCK!!! I look forward to seeing your remix! I <3 dragonflies!!!

  6. I don't sew so I don't know what it takes to change a pattern like that, but I do know what I like and you did a beautiful job. I especially LOVE the buttons.

  10. I've never ordered stuff from JoAnn's, but I do look at their website a lot! Maybe it's just as well...

  11. LOL! Well, I FINALLY got my order! They even added a small amount of extra fabric since it was the end of bolt. I guess that makes up for it. ;)
