Lucky me got to test another pattern from Dandelions n’ Dungarees. This is the Retro Frock.
Its on sale for 48 hours only for the low price of $5 in their Craftsy shop!
It has different sleeve options, a square neckline and fun pockets! I like too how you can play around with the panels in different fabrics. I kept it simple as I’m still working on playing around with fabrics (in other words I’m not adventurous yet for mixing prints!)
|Big goof! She is sooo difficult to get photos of sometime!|
The cap sleeves have been modified to be a bit less puffy, but I think they’re cute anyway. They also raised the front neckline a bit too.
It has buttons going down the back (or like I did snaps). And there is the option for doing a keyhole opening instead.
I like the retro feel to this dress. It would be cute as a tunic length top too.
The trickiest bit was sewing the curved front panels/pockets. It is recommended for intermediate level seamstresses but I think an adventurous beginner could do it!
Here’s the link again. I’m working on another one that I’m going to make tunic length! Fun!
