I don't know about you guys, but I like to get my money's worth out of a pattern. So, I thought I'd share a few pictures showing you how I've done it with my Adele dress pattern -- Adele gone wild, if you may.
These two versions of the Adele pattern were made from men's shirts. If you look closely you can see the skirt and apron still have the curved bottom edge and front buttons. Upcycling at its best!
Patterns are meant to be tweaked. I think they might even like it.
