I am bringing this post home because today is VOTING DAY!!!
I am super excited to share my Flip of the Sis Boom: Ethan shirt with you!
The Butterscotch Sun Day Dress (Get it?? Butterscotch Sundae, Butterscotch Sunday, Butterscotch Sun Day)
I have been on a Rockabilly kick lately, can you tell?
I made some obvious changes. Firstly, I made it into a dress (see? obvious) out of this very lightweight yellow and brown checked shirting. It had such a lovely vintage vibe that works for this look.
The front placket snaps closed. On the pocket, I made a faux flap with white stitching and added a decorative snap, but it functions as a regular pocket that is open on the top. For the peplum-type feature, I used the pieces that were supposed to be the cuffs! I added a little piping and a few decorative snaps there, as well.
More piping under the back yoke (you can never have too much, right?). I made it short sleeved, and added a tab to each sleeve to snap up in place. I used similar tab pieces in the back. For a more fitted look, I took in the sides, slightly.
She is wearing a crinoline to add a little extra poof. Because who doesn’t need extra poof?!
We did two photo sessions, and the second, she got to go wild and let her hair down.
This pattern was so much fun to work with and clearly so versatile!
Thanks for inviting me to be a part of this FLIP!
