My name is Alex and I blog over at Giddyants.  This is one of the few things I have ever ‘hacked’ or changed.  Normally I try to follow instructions as closely as possible.

I made this Ileana dress recently and it was inspired by a costume a character wore in an episode of the Sci-fi show Firefly. 

I used the full circle skirt of the Ileana dress with the raglan sleeve bodice.  I used a collar and the faux button band too.  I split the skirt into four bands and added seam allowances.  The top and first band is actually a pale yellow microdot but it complements the pink well.  I’m usually really not a big fan of pink but I think this dress has become one of my favourites.
