1 Pattern 3 Ways

Hey Everyone!

Thanks for following along on the 1 Pattern: 3 Ways tour being hosted by Bethany of Sew-Not-Perfect! It’s such a great idea to get the most use out of the patterns already in your stash (although I cannot deny the allure of purchasing new patterns!)

I still haven`t had a chance to finish all three looks.. Wah! But I have two versions of Girls’ Dress and Shirt Pattern No. 6 from E+M Patterns (affiliate link) to show you!

First, is the pattern hack version. It’s a simple pattern hack. I followed the directions for the dress version with a waistband, but instead of adding the skirt, I made the waistband 12″ long (so 6″ folded over) to make a top with a wide band. Hopefully I will convince her to pose in it this afternoon and I can get pics of her wearing it! It looks so cute on (she tried it on but wouldn’t agree to photos).

The next version is the tester I made last year. This one was made following instructions exactly. Top length with flutter sleeves.



I have dress version in the works! Hopefully will update the post again in a couple days.
