"Sure! No problem" I said figuring I could make some during KCW.
In my stash was a Simplicity #3859 pattern and it filled the bill…or so I thought.
I made view B with white contrast hem and v-neck bodice and used a half meter of a summery greenish-aqua and white fabric.
As it turned out, it didn't fit the bill.
She didn't like the v-neck and she didn't like the bow on the bodice as per the pattern, so I took it off and plunked it on a hairband. She liked that.
When we tried it on, it was miles too big both in length and width.
Miss C usually wears size 5 in RTW but I made size 6 judging by the chart on the back of the pattern that indicated it would fit a 22inch chest and she's just shy of 22".
I didn't get a photo of the ill fitting dress because it was, well, ill fitting.
Off hand I would say it worked out to be much like a RTW generous 6X.
However the good news is she has a dress made and ready for next summer…….
…and with a matching hairband.
