I really should be getting a kickback from Jalie lately. I don’t know why but I’ve been drawn to them so much lately. I love some of the Burda looks, but it takes time to trace them and I’ve been lazy. I modified Jalie 2805 to make a nightgown for the Little One. I made it longer and added a fun flounce to it. This is size H, which is the 4T size. The little half-pint here is 3.5 years old so it’s perfect for her.
Here’s a illustration of what I did. Hopefully it makes sense to you. I sewed the 18” length of flounce to the bottom of the dress. Well, actually, I sewed the two flounces together first and then attached them to the bottom of the dress.
I’m so bad at picking colors for embellishments that I actually got an app for it. It’s called Color Pair. First, you take a picture of whatever and this thing shows you complementary and contrasting colors that would work well with the colors you are using. Angie is always so good at this and I’m just so bad. So. Bad.
So, because of the Color Pair app, I decided to use this teal binding and ribbon. I do think it looks really nice and I never would have picked it without the application. I’m just unsure of my color choices and this seems to give me courage to mix and match in ways I never would before. I attached the bow with a couple of bartacks in a matching thread color.
Next up? A Frankenpattern with cool results.
