Parfait: Johanna’s creation


johanna's parfait

I am so amazed by what Johanna of The Last Stitch created from Parfait. She used a rayon crepe, and I just love the colors and pattern of her fabric. Here’s what she said when she emailed me:

My name is Johanna and I just want to give you a big thumps up for the Parfait dress. I finished it last week and I am totally in love. I’m a pretty picky sewer and usually have to tweak the patterns so that they fit my aesthetic and fit requirements, but I did Parfait as is (except that I omitted the pocket) and it turned out incredibly well. Also instead of doing a small bust alteration I graded the bodice down two sizes (from 4-0) and I got a great fit from that method. Not sure if it works for all small busts of course, but it was nevertheless a very quick alteration method that might be worth trying for others too.
