Maggie Mae Dress


I purchased the Maggie Mae pattern from Shwin Designs the other day
when they were offering 40% off all their patterns.
I bought the larger size which covers size 6-10. I thought I'd make one for my 10 year old.

This pattern has simple instructions but is probably best suited
to a competent sewer as they are not overly detailed.

It comes in 2 lengths, as a top and as a dress.
I made the top, which is more like a dress.

I really loved the look of this pattern but when I made it I was not 100% happy with the result.
This is most likey due to my sewing and not the actual pattern :)

It was really quite wide and shapeless so I ended up
adding some ruched elastic to the sides to bring it in a little bit. 

 I will try this pattern again, making a couple more changes
that will suit both me and my daughter better.
I guess the beauty of making things yourself is it allows you to change things
and customise as you wish.

She had complained that the neck felt a little chokey so I will round it a bit more
at the front and I might also round the underarms a little more too.

To solve the width around the waist I might add a casing and enclose elastic all the way around.

We achieved the same result with a thick elastic belt today.

Linking up here.
