I am keeping it short and sweet today. I used two different patterns to make the little green dress which is always fun to do because it gives you a chance to look beyond the envelopes and be creative.
I used the bodice of V8815,minus the peplum of course, and I used M6842 View A for the skirt. I lengthened the the bodice by 1" and then sewed the bodice together and sleeves, then the skirt and joined them at the waist. It was super simple and worked like a charm. The only few adjustments I needed to make were at the waist. The thing I love most is my self covered belt! They are so easy to make if you have some belting and a covered buckle kit. Sometimes having a fabric covered belt just makes the sewn garment look even more fab!
I made the dress out of a Kelly Green Athletic Spandex that I seem to be obsessed with. I even told Regina at Michael Levine to save me every color that comes in. It's almost like an amazing light weight scuba fabric that holds it shape like no other, I love it!! shoot for a second I almost hated sharing LOL!!! don't buy it all up! but if you do buy don't forget to use my coupon "mimi10"
