Sugar n Spice Hawaiian Dress Pattern Hack Instructions
Step 1. Using the Sugar n Spice sewing pattern, choose the sleeveless pinafore. On your pattern piece, cut off the bottom 1/4th inch of both the front and back (seam allowance). Draw a new seam allowance 1/4th inch above the bottom edge. Cut out your bodice, using the pink neckline.
Step 2. Cut your skirt piece (20 inches by 4 1/2 inches). Cut a ruffle (30 inches x 2 1/2 inches)
Step 3. Follow the pattern to construct the dress, but do not sew the hem.
Step 4. Using a serger or a zig zag stitch, finish the long, bottom edge of the ruffle. Press up 1/4th inch and sew in place. Using a long basting stitch, gather the top, raw egde of the ruffle.
Step 5. With right sides together, attach the ruffle to the bottom of the skirt, adjusting gathers to fit. Top stitch if desired. Finish the back edges according to the pattern.
