Coming back to the mistake today, it didn't look so bad. All I needed to do, was to:
- unpick the seam joining the t-shirt and the skirt
- cut the t-shirt just under the armhole, so it is about 2 inches shorter than the other dresses
- gather again and reattach
The t-shirt isn't sitting as well as the other two dresses. It looks stretched but it's not. I think the reason the t-shirt is not sitting as well, is because it's cut much higher. Not sure why, but it's not too bad.
I'm very happy with the underskirt and the way the lace and overskirt sits on top. This was just the effect I was after.
This little dress will be joining the previous t-shirt dresses for the Hopeful Threads sew-along to support Dress A Girl Around the World.
Head on over to Sew Delicious, to see the gorgeous peasant dresses that Ros has made for the sew-along. She has used such bright, fun fabric. Heidi, over at Grizz 'n' Dove, has joined in by making four lovely pillowcase dresses, with beautiful decorative stitching.
