The very pretty Lekala #4679.
A very modern, 'cold shoulder' dress pattern, custom fit to her measurements.
The first attempt was almost a disaster
I ticked the wide shoulder adjustment but there was no way it was going to work.
Pattern drafting is not my thing but I had a go.
I added a fair chunk of width to the over arm flounce and just sort of winged it.
It seemed to have worked.
At least she can move her arms now.
I sewed it up in some vintage rayon from my stash.
I will be sad when that is used up, cheers Mrs Nank!
This dress is so floaty!
I love the flounce around my shoulders, and the way it seems to dance when I move and raise my arms. I originally had it made for a play but now I wear it every chance that I get. The pattern is now custom fit for me so I plan to have a few more of these made. Maybe in a light blue or yellow rayon. It is beautiful and I love it, thank you mum.
Thank you for reading!
