Ok, I'm a bit late with this post about a dress I made in November to wear to my Christmas functions. This is one of those dresses that you buy the fabric for one day, cut it out that night, sew it the next day and wear it to a Christmas party the next, all while casually ignoring your family. You do it too, right? When I went into The Fabric Shop to grab some fabric for the dress the only thing I was thinking was "just not floral". Fail! I'm working on the floral addiction...
Pattern: burdastyle 9/2012 #109
Fabric: floral cotton and rayon lining from The Fabric Store
Alterations: shortened the sleeves, took in the side seams under the sleeves, and the sleeves a little
Speaking of sleeves, can someone tell me if it is a feature of a shift dress with sleeves to become extremely short when you raise your arms? Or have I just not fit the dress correctly?
