Flipping the Tinny

I was  very excited  to see  that  one  of  the  patterns in the flip contest was  the  Tinny. As I told you in previous  posts I was  a tester  for  An's  pattern and  was  so pleased that  I was  determined  to make  another  one, the  third, but  this  time  an sleeveless version. That  was  a  FLIP that  I  had in mind, wasn't it? So, it  was  a very easy decision.




 So these  were  my  changes to the  original pattern:
I lowered the neckline on both back and front bodice, narrowed the width of the shoulders, and also replaced the zipper with these big colourful heart-shaped buttons.



Also added piping all around the neckline, armscyes and back and added a waistband on the front and a bow at the back.
I used the bodice pieces of the pattern and the circle skirt option. I love how the pieces match to the milimetre! No extra fabric in any of the pieces = no extra work to adjust it = super fast no-trouble assembly of the dress , yay!





And best of all is that my daughter is in love with the dress! She couldn't wait to wear it!
