An airy, breezy sweet summer dress has been made.
Ottobre Sculpture no. 10 tops with baby hems.... jumped right in and sewed baby hems on this neckline by simply turning in a mere 1/4" seam, machine stitch, then turn in again a 1/4" seam and machine stitch. There may be a little wobble in the way the neckline lays, but not much. Also added a 1 1/2" band around the front and back between the bodice and the skirt. The gathers were hitting me mid-bust and wasn't sure how that would 'wear' for me, so thought adding the band would work better. Cut the band on the bias for a little interest. Also cut and sewed a curved hem, not straight as per pattern. Cut 2" off length and still hemmed up 2". Added in-seam pockets. I *heart* pockets! :)
here and I found examples made by other women here, here and here.
