Please excuse the look of my pouting model. We had just returned home from church and she didn't want her picture taken.
But because she's two, it only took her a split second to change her mind, and suddenly she bacame a willing participant!
The pattern is made up of three pieces--a front, a back, and a sleeve. I went for a length in between the dress and the cropped top by hacking off about 10" from the hem. The only real change I made was by adding an underbust casing to the bodice. Elastic gathers this area, along with the neckline and sleeves. There is no zipper or button placket--the whole thing simply slips over the head. I think it took me longer to cut out the pattern than it did to sew it! The fabric is 100% sheer cotton, probably a voile, but I can't remember exactly. I added a pretty lace along the hem, and the whole blouse just flows and drapes so nicely.
