Rayon Aloha Print Sleeveless Shift

Sleeveless Rayon ShiftPattern:  New Look (easy) 6869          Rayon Shift

Description: Sleeveless shift with zippered back.  This shift is lined.

Resembles picture on the pattern envelope?  No.

Pattern alterations:  I used View B of this pattern and eliminated the collor and front opening.  To keep the original pattern together, I traced the front piece and then modified the neckline, thereby, making a separate pattern piece.  Using this modification, I needed to put a ziper in.

Comments:  I love the fall colors in this piece.  I added salmon top stitching around the neckline.  I bought this fabric on sale ($5/yd).  At the time of purchase I got three yeards and was able to make two outfits of it.  This is the first outfit.

    Mama, el vestido es muy bonito. (I have no idea why the word “dress” is masculine… but that is what the internet tells me so that is what I type.)

    Muchas gracias, mi hermana. Not bad for a $10 dress, eh?
