This 16 year old girl is 6ft tall and slender but busty and has hips - an elongated hourglass shape. She wanted a fun, modest dress that flattered her figure. Fitted dresses were unflattering because they weren't small enough in the ribs/ waist and emphasized her hips. The current style of full skirted micro minis did not look proportional with her long legs. Shoulder straps were required so she could wear a bra.. For her we chose a pretty cream-colored dress with a handkerchief hem. It is very fitted in the ribs and waist area showing off this slender area, but loose in the hips. It was made in a sheer cream colored chiffon, with the body fully lined, but the handkerchiefs left sheer to give it a hint of the popular short lengths. Here is the sketch. The handkerchief hem is modified from a vintage pattern I brought home from Switzerland. The final version! She loved it and it was fun to twirl in, although maybe not in 6 inch heels!
