A Long Time Coming - S2193 Final Version (for now!)

I teased a while back about a piece of fabric I had been saving for a while. Saving for a very specific dress for my girls.

I muslin-ed that dress a few months ago and worked out the kinks in the pattern so I was ready to combine the two!

I sewed up these dresses at the end of July, but I got so busy with tons of other sewing that I haven't yet had a chance to photograph or write about it till now.

These dresses were especially made for a three day convention our family attends every summer.

I added a lining to the skirt in addition to all the other changes I made to the pieces and construction from last time. I also widened the skirt by two inches (one inch more that last time) to ensure a nice flowy skirt. I think two inches at CF and CB was perfect.

(Inside lining - nice clean finish!)

(Back button closure)

And of course new dresses need new accessories! I made these headbands to go along...

...the girls really love the headbands.

I paired it all off with these shoes.....
... which all made for some pretty cute little girls!

  1. Oh, this cracked me up! Can't tell you how many times I constructed a garment according to my own instructions, not theirs... And Grandma T would be absolutely PROUD of your work!

  2. Genius!! Love your modifications! Would you mind sharing how you added the lining? Did you construct the yoke first?
