While I love Katie's fabric choices for her dress, I don't own solid color fabric. Not one single yard. I mean I probably have some white muslin, but that is it. So I chose two fabrics that I thought were complimentary and not too loud.
When cutting out the front of the dress, I moved the pattern which was to be placed on the fold about a 1/2 inch away from the fold.
Then I carefully trimmed the very edge of the front dress piece creating 2 pieces for the front of the dress instead of one.
I cut a strip of my blue coordinating fabric 4 1/2 inches wide and however long my dress is (sorry I didn't measure).
I then sewed both of the front dress pieces to the blue middle piece and did an inverted pleat at the top.
I followed the rest of the instructions that came with the pattern, and here's the finished product.
Now Grace has a new dress to wear on her second day of school. She wore the Jump Rope Dress on the first day. Should I try to make her a new outfit for every day of school??? Totally kidding. I'm not that crazy!
