Another early venture into making my own patterns.
For this dress I took the top of one pattern and the bottom of another and combined them.
I added several lines of elastic casing at the high waistline because this was well before I discovered elastic thread bobbins.
I also added some tiny crochet trim someone gave me. It was a last minute decision and almost didn’t make it onto the dress, but I’m glad it did because it’s the perfect touch.
