The first version of the Tinny dress for Flip This Pattern is more or less a wearable muslin.
I made it up quickly to see how it would fit as well as how it would be received.
For inspiration I looked at vintage patterns because the Tinny dress certainly has a vintage feel.
I came up with this........
I know, it's kind of lame and all I really did was dissect the bodice to put in some white. The sleeves are lengthened a little bit and the cuff is a simple white band because I was in a hurry. But hey, it is flipping ... isn't it?
With dress in hand I asked Miss C., who was busy having fun at her brothers birthday party, to try on the dress.
She agreed most willingly, except she wasn't prepared to take off her t-shirt and shorts, so the dress went over the lot and I followed her around like the paparazzi.
She loved the dress. Her mom loved the dress. And they both loved how it twirled.
"Make more," they said.
"I'll get right on it," I replied.
So another Tinny is on the way that has been Flipped.
