Last summer I pinned this dress. Not too exciting, but I liked that it was made in a knit fabric and the use of stripes. Thumbs up for stripes!
Penny Pinafore, during the winter. Hooray, now mocking up this dress would be as easy as pie.
here if you're interested and she does still have this fabric in stock. It's virtually impossible to stripe match across the princess line seams so we're calling it a "design element." Otherwise you wouldn't know the seam lines were there....yeah that's it. (My lobster Fredrick agrees.)
Quick How To
1. The match point notches are a great guide line for turning the Penny Skater into a bodice. I laid the CF pattern piece against my body to get an estimate on where my waist falls on the dress. I found it was 2" below the match point line. I then traced each pattern piece down to 2" below the match point lines and squared off the bottom of the pattern.
3. I sewed the Penny skater bodice together normally, except that top stitching was added to the princess line seams. The Penny bodice and Skater skirt are then attached as directed in the Skater directions.
Luxulite Lobster brooch and make kissy faces at it while pretending to be on a boat. OK, that's just me. Novelty brooches forevera!
