In 2002 we put this dropped-waist pattern out as a sewing challenge to our website visitors. It was a challenge to see how many variations people could make from the pattern. A number
of website visitors took the challenge and sewed the dress with
their own unique touches. Just look at all the variations:
Laura Ciampa's Easter Dress
remembered how special a dropped-waist Easter Dress was
to her as a child and used the memory for inspiration for
this beautiful dress.
Graber used the Challenge to make dresses like Pollyanna's
dresss in the Walt Disney Pollyanna movie.
