Several African wax prints were selected by Felicity when we had mother & daughter time in Paris two years ago. This fabulous green lantern one has been patiently waiting to be turned into a dress since then.
Felicity and I have had various ideas about what to do with it, but nothing had seemed right until she suggested using the same pattern as my ghost fish dress.
This dress is based on Burdastyle 07/2016 #117– made symmetric and without the straps.
Mine was a sort of size 42. I got her to try it on to see how far it was from her size.
Of course it was too big for Felicity though the waist and hips. But the fit through the bust wasn’t too bad.
So. I could trace off a new copy of this pattern in her size and then do an FBA, or I could use the pattern I already had and just take it in from the bust down. A cheaters FBA.
You know what I did.
We both love the dress. This story ended well!
