Carolyn's blog, she left me with food for thought. She posed a question "Have you had high hopes for a pattern and fabric combination and it just wasn't what you expected when you finished it? " I closed out saying that I have high hopes for my dd's garment and thought further, before I continue sewing, do a visual of the dress/tunic.
Our intentions are to use a printed fabric for the yoke. I had to make an adjustment to the garment, I initially cut a size 10 and it was too big and now it fits nicely. She also wants the hemline to hit mid thigh, but I will deal with that later, also we are opting out of the patch pockets. However, she tried it minus the yoke and off enjoying herself at Si.x Flag.s...lol.
Giving further thought to Carolyn's question, I pinned the yoke to the dress and attached one of the sleeves to get a visual of what it would look like. Dd mentioned that she would sport a white belt with it, so took a few pics with some variations.
I'm not too sure about the yoke and thinking I should go with the same fashion fabric for the yoke... what do you think?
