This is the second outfit that I have made from the film “Meet Me In St. Louis”. When I first started thinking about sewing for Gene in 2003, I wanted to make all the outfits from the movie. I made the Trolley outfit in 2009, it was a lot of work. This outfit wasn’t so bad once I figured out the design.
While I was making the pattern, I noticed that the stripes in the skirt were thicker than the stripes in the bodice.
You can really see the difference in the stripes in this photo. I have not idea why the stripes are green in this photo. The stripes also look like they get thinner the closer they get to the waist.
There was no way I was going to find fabric like that so I just used a blue stripe.
Here is my lame attempt at using props.
A few of these dresses will be available for sale on my Blog Store soon.
