Victoria stripes

Posted on May 10, 2017 by Nikki Brooks-Revis

Lately, I've been obsessed with stripes and ruffles. There's something so completely classic and feminine about pairing the two that makes this obsession even more irresistible.  When I spotted this white/navy striped cotton woven at this kicked off my warm weather lust.  This cotton has a slightly raised texture with stretch in one direction.  It's lightweight and perfect for warm weather.

Chandler's dress was made using my leftover Rag & Bone black and white striped cotton woven which looks very close to my fabric and performs almost identical.  The ruffle was made using the fabric I used for my top.

The pattern I used for this top is vintage McCalls 4722 with the following pattern alterations:

-Removed the buttons from the front of the pattern by cutting the front on the fold.

-Added a seam and a 9"invisible zipper to the back.

-Added an additional seam across the back 8" from the top of the back

-Cut 2    4.5"x 60"  pieces of fabric and attached them to the shoulder, front and back seams pleating as I attached.

-Pleated the sleeve and added a sleeve cuff with two buttons.

Chandler's dress was made using my  Marie Mini Jadore pattern
