I love to use ModCloth as a source of sewing inspiration – they tend to use fun and novel prints with a slightly vintagy vibe. So when I saw Zor-Elle’s Goth Cookie’s print, I immediately knew what I wanted to make….
If you’ve been to ModCoth’s site, then you’ve seen that they make quite a few mock turtle shirts in novelty prints. I decided to replicate this look with Patterns for Pirate’s Hepburn Top & Dress. I used the top version with short sleeves and mock turtle neckline, but I wound up shortening it by 2.5″ so it hit me more around the mid-hip area. Once I was done, I had “just” enough material left over to make a matching pair of Cutie Booty Boxer Briefs! The best part is, I was able to make all of this with just 1 yard of fabric!
You can snag this print along with Zor-Elle’s entire website for 35% off until April 1 – no code needed.
