I used the top part of the Alissa wrap top sewing pattern to get the wrap bodice and sleeves right. I shortened the bodice by three inches so it would come right under my bust. Then I added a wrap circle skirt to make it a dress. It came together quickly and easily. I made it midi length since it’s cold and wintery. The hardest part was to hem all the edges. It took a long time, but a double needle made it a little easier. I’m glad I took the time to put it all together and make the hems nice. It’s a great basic and classic dress that I’ll happily wear. Here’s how to use a twin needle.
I really wanted a pale gray color like the movie, but I had this pretty turquoise cotton spandex jersey fabric that seemed a little more winter appropriate. And I LOVE the color. It fits into my capsule wardrobe perfectly. I can’t wait to pair it with vests, cardigans, tights, and boots.
I really wanted to take pictures on a cliff like in the movie, and I do live near some cliffs. The weather wasn’t cooperating though because either I was in the sun or in the snow. So instead of getting some pretty open views behind me I got some stunning snowy mountains famous in the rockies.
