Mother daughter sparkle...

I finally finished sewing the Simplicity 3514 Hannah Montana pattern that my youngest daughter chose a few years ago while she was a child.

Now that she is a teenager I made view D but I made it into a dress by adding 4 inches to the middle section.  The sleeves were difficult & the pattern instructions made no sense to me.  So I made them without the lining & then it came together easy.  I think maybe I cut out the sleeves wrong.  Her favorite part of this dress is the sleeves!

I like how the back drapes with this sequin fabric.

On the front bodice I had to add another panel because I cut out a size 12 according to her measurements & it was way too big.

With the left overs of this expensive fabric I made myself a bias cut skirt from my own pattern.  Sadly I did not finish her dress for New Years but recently we have both been invited to a local Fashion Show so we get to wear our outfits then.

Sew you later!
