As soon as I started making the garments for the pattern review contest (previous post on this here), plans changed a little! I have added a different top in matching skirt fabric. I haven't decided which top will be removed from the capsule. So far, the plan is still to make all the tops I had initially decided and then take one out at the end.
Now onto the finishes! I have finished garment #1 and garment #2 for the contest. This was fast because skirt didn't need muslining and top pattern was already tried and true. I did do some hacking for the top but it was relatively straightforward and worked on my first try! That's great because I have very little of this chiffon left. There might be a short cami I can squeeze out of this just to give myself more options.
Garment 1 - McCall 7606 Petal Skirt
This skirt is a really simple silhouette and yet, has an impact. I love the way the petals open up to show off the leg. I used a chiffon fabric and it just drapes perfectly!
Garment 2 - Rad Pattern Unicorn dress hack
I've made the unicorn dress before. It is a great pattern as is. After making the McCall skirt, I still had enough fabric left over to make a top and I thought top and skirt together would give off a wrap dress look while being separates! I chose the unicorn dress for the hack because I love the sleeves and the way the front closes nicely, and also because it was already printed out. The hack was to add a short peplum in tunic length. The pattern does not come with a top/tunic version but it was really easy to make that part up! You'll get to see the top in its entirety in a future post. I just don't have any other bottoms done to photograph with it yet.
