Dare: Sewed in Bra Form in a Romantic Sundress for a Pre-teen

My granddaughter is growing up.
I just made her this flowing sundress
and I DARED to insert a 
foam bra form into the lining.

This is a first for me.
I ordered the bra forms on Amazon because I knew that she couldn't wear a bra with the tiny straps that emerge from the bodice front shoulder area and thread through a small loop in the back bodice. 
 4 rows of inserted elastic form the back bodice.
 I only sewed the skirt to the back bodice, and finished the lining edge with my serger.
This dress features a high to low hem line.  
This is the second time that I've made this dress, but I learned my lesson after the first dress!!!
I chose a fabric in which the color is the same on the front and the back.  Last time the print was only on the front of the fabric, so I had to line the whole skirt of the dress.  More expense and so much more work and weight on the final garment. 
This one has even more flow...

Romantic Creation

There is a person inside of me that enjoys creating something romantic....
and flows....with soft colors.

Short in the front and long 
and flowing in the back. 

Hugging the body with ties that lace up 
in the back to form a sweet bow.


Sewing Tip:  Here is how I was able to sew such nice straight lines to run my elastic through. I use low stick painters tape. Stick it on the back bodice and sew your line of stitching next to the tape. Remove tape and repeat for the next row.


The Woods in Your Own Backyard

Have you ever been inspired to design an outfit based on what
 you see each day?
  Well, this is what I see out my window each day:
Yes,  these beautiful woods are right
 in my backyard. 

When I saw this fabric, I was reminded  of my very own woods...................
In the Fall, my woods are full of color...  pink, orange,  brown, and yellow.

 If you look closely at the cat's shirt, you will see the fabric that the matching shorts are made with... fun!  

It was late at night when I was creating this outfit, and I go carried away and even made a little cat face as a back pocket. 

 The completed pocket. 

So my outfit was 
inspired by
where I live.Image may contain: people standing
