I should know this but HELP!!

Postby nonie » May 29th, 2017, 11:53 am

Dang I can't get my brain to work, so am counting on you. I want to make a pillowcase type dress and want it to tie in the back.
Now Corrie said the length was 20" (seems long to me but---) I want to use 1 1/2" ribbon. so how long do I cut the dress? how much do I use for the ribbon? does that make sense? How long do I need the ribbon to be to tie nicely in a bow in the back?

I know once I get it!! All will be okay.

I had a nice little chart when we did all those dresses for Korea...I'll see if I can find it. It outlined the whole thing. I think mine had a separate straight bodice...but you could add that yoke to the length.

Edited: I spotted this in my search. There isn't a picture on this downloaded pattern

Lots of eye candy here to help the creative juices flowing. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/421579215102527245/

I did not see the free pattern I used.

I'm sorry Nonie. I've been out of pocket and am just now seeing this. I just sent you a PM.
