I had plenty of this fabric left, and I was worried that since I had NOT intended to make the dress from the outset, I might be forced into making frustrating adjustments or compromises for what I had in mind. Since my daughter liked the pullover, I gave it to her and started over. I ended up with something I am pretty happy with!
I had to play around a bit with where the pattern would best be placed. Where it first wound up would have been way too low. I tried it on and felt like Grandma Moses.
