Welcome to Week 1 of the Mod Monday series! This series will feature simple modifications that can be made to my easy and free Shoulder Tie Dress pattern. See the sidebar to the right for the links to the tutorial series.
For this first modification, the change made to the pattern is as simple as adding one buttonhole. Really, that's all there is.
I changed the location of the bow to the center back by simply adding a buttonhole to the center back before sewing the casing down. Thread the tie through the buttonhole into the back casing, through the front and then back through the back casing and back out the buttonhole. I used an extra long piece of ribbon to add a bit of romantic drama to this particular dress. Super easy, super cute!
Everything else about this mod follows the tutorial instructions just as they are written.
I had been told that some of the favorite things of the little miss who modeled the dress are pink, flowers and dresses. She was incredibly cute when she saw the dress for the first time. She hugged it to her chest, jumped up and down and ran to try it on. I think it was a hit with her and she looks lovely wearing it. She is so very photogenic that it was really difficult to choose which photos to use, so I will leave you with just a couple more of my favorites.
I hope you will join me next week for Variation 2!
Until next time, happy sewing!
