This modern update on a classic 1950s-style fit-and-flare dress is a spring showstopper ideal for parties, weddings and proms, but it could be easily dressed down for a vintage- inspired daytime look, too. Pleats add detail at the neckline, bodice darts at the front and back ensure a flattering fit, and the flared skirt is perfect for twirling on the dancefloor! We’ve sized the pattern to fit standard UK dress sizes, from 6 to 20. Before cutting out your pattern, it’s important to take your measurements accurately and compare them to the size chart on the pattern envelope. This simple-sew project will take you through key dressmaking skills step by step, including transferring pattern markings, inserting an invisible zip, adding neckline and armhole facings, sewing neat darts and pleats, constructing a fitted bodice and attaching and hemming a full skirt.
FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: Brocade, cotton, cotton lawn, cotton sateen, crepe de chine, crepe suiting, georgette, poplin, polyester, satin, silk, linen.
To get started on making your Daisy Dress, first pre-wash and dry your chosen fabric to allow for any shrinkage. Unfold the pattern sheets included in the pattern envelope, and find the line style for your size using the key provided. Follow these lines to cut your pattern pieces out – it can be helpful to mark them using a highlighter before cutting. If you’d like to use the pattern again to make The Daisy Dress in a different size, trace the pattern before cutting it out. Read through the instructions included in the pattern envelope before you start sewing, and make sure you do all the steps in the correct order.

In 2010 Chelsea D.E. Johnson and Adam Farnsworth started a bi-monthly showcase called Sunday’s Best. They took on the name and two players: the multi-instrumentalist Ashton Sweet on the baritone saxophone and the well-toured percussionist Kenan Sungur on drums. The night became a local hit and the band grew tighter as they prepared new material for each show. In 2011 the group changed their name to High Society and brought their material to Mushroom Records and CBC Studio 2 to record their self-titled, debut album. They have featured as a main act at the Robson Valley Music Festival and Arts Wells, backed burlesque troupes, rocked house parties,cafés, bars and theatres across Western Canada and are eager to make the leap to the East Coast tour circuit.High Society is based out of Vancouver, B.C. appearance is a great chance for all his fans to watch his new amazing performance. Guitar Lessons Mississauga: Pro Music Studio is opened and welcome everyone to give us a visit!
