Bringing home my post for the Flip This Pattern series over at Frances Suzanne. If you'd like to vote for your favourite look, today's the last day!
Choosing Straightgrain's Tinny pattern as my selection for 'Flip this Pattern' was easy. What wasn't as easy, was how to 'flip' a dress already so wonderfully designed with so many options already included with the pattern? It quickly became clear to me that I needed to make it a different type of garment altogether, and 'flip' it front to back. In the end, my Tinny dress, became a Tinny jacket...
Here are the changes I made to the Tinny Dress pattern:
- Cut back bodice on fold
- Cut 2 front bodices and increased width by 1.5 inches/4cm
- Cut Peter Pan Collar on the fold
- Lengthened the sleeves
- Shortened skirt, cut front skirt in 2
- Added bodice and sleeve linings
- French seams on skirt side seams
Fabric: Cotton Twill (outer fabric), Quilter's Cotton (lining), Black Velvet (collar, cuffs)
Thank you so much for including me in this awesome series, Emily & Ashley! And thank you, An, for such a great pattern!
