I modified a basic t-shirt pattern by making it longer and wider at the bottom. Then I cut out front and back bodice keeping the shoulders intact. Next, I cut out the sleeves keeping the original hem. The sleeves were attached to the top of the dress, then the side and the sleeve seams were sewn in one continuous seam beginning at the bodice hem. Viola! The dress is done.
Or not. Maybe an owl needs to be added. Mostly because I discovered a small stain in the process of sewing. Now it is done.
That's Ania's idea of modeling
