Looking to get the most out of your patterns this summer? Extend the size of your summer wardrobe with a simple and easy pattern hack! This hack of the Mood Fabrics Poppy Dress creates the perfect win-win situation with pieces that can be worn together or as separates. Here’s how!
All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 30.
Sewing your pattern as separates couldn’t be easier. Once you have your pieces cut out, attach the waistband to your skirt as you would with any normal skirt and waistband.
Add the self-belt to the bottom of your top for an easy tie-and-go look! No closures are needed.
The look and style of your sleeves are totally optional. I decided to print the flutter sleeve from Mood Fabric’s free Nyssa Dress pattern. This sleeve was a perfect fit, no adjustments were needed!
How do you plan to hack your Poppy Dress? We’d love to know!
Use the original puff sleeve for your Poppy Dress hack to create a statement look!
The skirt is a great separate to rock with tank tops, and tee’s all summer long!
