Default The dress that almost did me in

Here is the "play" dress that almost drove me crazy if not for the Christmas tree skirt that gave me respite! Trying to sew with 5/8 seam allowances was almost impossible and reducing an adult size six to a child's size six was ridiculous. Anyway it is done and she loves it.. Even found some old jewelry to finish off the look. Just need to make some belt loops to keep the medallion at the Empire line.
I m sticking to quilting.

She looks gorgeous! Not a bad job! I understand though. My nieces prom dress was altered from a size 16 to a size 6. They wanted to save money. Now that dress was a disaster.

Beautiful girl and dress. I no longer sew clothes and haven't for many years. All I make now are quilts.
