A loves swimming and when she isn’t swimming she loves dragging around her two mermaid dolls so when I saw this fabric which reminds me of ocean waves I thought I’d make an ocean dress for my little mermaid. I whipped up my second A-Line Baby Dress (Mamma Can Do It-Emma Collection) in no time.
This will be A’s dress for the rehearsal dinner next month. I kept it super simple with no hem at the bottom or on the sleeves and I tucked the neck under and zigzagged it. Without the collar the neckline was a bit large for A, but adding a couple of inverted pleats and some ribbon roses fixed that while also dressing it up a bit more.
This one was a size larger than the first and it had the same problem with the sleeves being just a smidge shy of long enough to fit the shoulder seam. It was closer on this dress than on the first dress, but it was still apparent and I had to alter the side seams a bit to compensate (again). In the future, I’ll cut sleeves a smidge wider.
Next week is the Spring 2015 KCW and I can’t wait. Come join us. Also, some great prizes are being given away on the KCW blog this week.
