SewStylish Spring Fashion Challenge 2014

Semi-Formal One of A Kind

My tall daughters can't really shop for short formals - anywhere! Adding length to the pattern keeps it fashionable AND mom & dad approved!

I enjoy sewing but find I am most productive when there is a need and a deadline!  My daughters are tall, hence, presenting the need. And two weeks until the dance, well, the deadline! This is a McCall’s pattern where I used satin; white and purple, chiffon; white and polka dotted, and purple tulle; not seen. I added length to the skirt and both mom and daughter were happy.  There was sure to be no other dress like it at the dance!

    I had the opposite problem as my daughter was tiny. It started me on an entire lifetime of sewing. Hope you are enjoying it as my as I do. the dress looks very nice and lots of fun for a teen.
