I like it up. I like it down. I like it half way round.


I like its 20’s lilt and the colours I built.

Pattern Magic Dress

Pattern: Pattern Magic vol 3.  See inspiring versions by Carolyn and Mokosha.

Fabric:  Thrifted blue wooly stretchy stuff (?), polyester from Spotlight

Ease:  Easy Sewing, bit of thinking in the drafting

Tidbits: I used the pattern as a guide only as I wanted to use an existing t-shirt as a template for the bodice.  I wasn’t sure about the bodice length but Super Bloke loves it and wouldn’t have a bar of me changing it!  I have plans to make another in a shorter length.

Oppsies:  I didn’t realise that the top arm holes are designed so your head can fit through them until I wore it and this option made sense.  Definitely trying this out by widening the sleeves next time.
