I've made it once before however I'm not so sure Miss C has ever worn it. It was a little big for her and it doesn't twirl.
However she does wear Simplicity 3900. As a matter of fact one of the dresses from S3900 is in my repair bin (it's a deep bin - chock full) because there is a paint stain on the tie. It's an easy fix.
Here are the two dresses from S3900 that I was totally inspired to make from here.
So for the Flip This Pattern I thought I'd incorporate the mandarin collar and neck opening from the bodice top of S3900 and fit it to the bodice top of O+S Roller Skate dress.
There's a zipper for the back opening.
The sleeve edges have piping as does the collar and neck band.
Putting in lining to the bodice top was very difficult to do.
The inside of the collar and the lining are not attached, they are butt up to each other. The lining at the neck opening is folded inside itself. Hope that makes sense.
I left off the waistband tie.
Oh, and I gathered just a little bit on the skirt front.
