Vintage Twist~

 

Sweet dress isn’t it?  Very cute, and feminine.  Trendyish.  I had a different idea.

 

My friend Teresa gave me these fabrics for her daughter Hannah.

 

 

I wanted a flutter sleeve, so I created one with this pattern.

 

 

See, a flutter sleeve is just the curve of a regular sleeve inverted.  You cut an underseam and then scoop the bottom down in order to have a nice flowing sleeve.

 

 

I loved this rick-rack with it.  It gave it such a nice cheerful and vintagey air.

 

 

 

 

What do you think?  Do you like it?  I think I’m going to like it.
