I love this dress of Marianne’s! I would love to make one like it for myself…
…but instead I made a doll-sized version.
The fabric is not the same color, but the construction details are the same. 🙂
I used the Josefina’s Christmas Dress Pattern as a base, but made several alterations. I added about an inch to the width of the front bodice piece so that it would have room to gather. The sleeves I borrowed from another pattern so that they would be slightly gathered at the top (but not puffed) and cut them at 3/4 length. I also created a waistband like Marianne’s.
Well, that is all for my Costume Inspiration entries. Hopefully, you will be seeing more in the future. 🙂 Now, ladies, we all must try to convince Atlanta to do this festival again next year!! 😀 😀 😀
