FrankenPattern: Second DIY Aso Ebi I Made

New Look 6123 Misses Dress + Vogue Patterns 8815 Misses Top

FrankenPattern is the use of multiple patterns to create a different look/pattern. For my second Aso Ebi for my friend's wedding, I mixed two different patterns in order to get what I wanted. (Here is the pattern review for my First Aso Ebi.) I wanted a wrap top short dress with sleeves down to my elbow. I found a pattern (New Look 6123), but I didn't like the sleeves that came with it, so I used the Vogue 8815's sleeves. I didn't have to hem the dress at all because the lace fabric I used has scalloped edge.

Pattern Review (NL6123 + V8815)

Pattern Description: 
NL6123 - Misses' dress with sleeve and bodice variations including flattering drape and ruffle detail.
V8815 - Fitted top has raised waist/hemline variations and narrow hem, back zipper.

Fabric Used: African Lace

Pattern Sizing: I cut out a size 8 for both patterns

Were the Instructions easy to follow?  Yes

Likes or Dislikes about the Pattern: I like the fact that the patterns instructions are pretty straight forward and easy to follow.

Pattern Alterations or Design Changes made: I lined the dress. For the Bodice and Skirt I used the NL6123 pattern and for the sleeves I used V8815. No Hemming.

Would you Sew it again? I'm not sure yet.. but I probably will. I might even mix the patterns with some other patterns. Here is the first V8815 I made (Peplum 1 with Sleeves)... and here is the second one (Peplum 2 w/o Sleeves).
