|~ Good Morning Tiki Cat ~|
I am wearing a modified night dress made from Tina Givens Lola Dress pattern.
|~ awww, give us a kiss ~|
I made it out of fabric I didn't much care for, sort of like a test drive for a night gown. The amount of fabric required says 54" wide is needed when only 45" or less is fine. You're instructed (and shown in the diagram) to cut 2 front pattern pieces on the fold. After you've already cut 1 back pattern piece (that's identical to the front) on the fold. There are some errors here.
|~ what a sweetie pie, mwaaa ~|
The pattern piece is too wide at the bodice but too narrow at the arm hole/ sleeve area. I made adjustments and added longer, wider sleeves. I also add side seam pockets.
|~ oh, and there goes the Tiki tail ~|
