Modifying the Margo

Wanting to modify the Margo from Blue Dot Patterns? Let’s break it down.

Sleeves can be altered for lot’s of looks. Sleeveless, banded, a peek-a-boo slit, A gathered cap, layers of lace, a simple sheer, or an added bow are all ideas to start.

The yoke on the Margo is a prime opportunity for your creativity.  Mix fabrics by using a lace, sheer, or dramatic print up top. Wouldn’t encrusting the yoke with pearly buttons be cute. The scoop neckline could also mean you can eliminate the button closure, replace it with a keyhole opening and tie, or a split neck opening.

Something I always forget is that you can modify a pattern to be a dress. You can layer sheers for a cool transparent effect and layer lace over anything for an extra feminine touch.  Using a woven for the yoke and a jersey knit for the body would be an interesting mix. How about a big switch up by moving the button placket to the back?.
