Girly dress no. 2


My lovely piece of Nani Iro japanese fabric has been sitting around in stash waiting for "the perfect dress pattern" to appear. So I got realistic and decided that it wasn't going to happen soon, and I'd rather wear and enjoy it in an OK form than not at all. So... I just used the trusty Simplicity 3835 AGAIN. Yes, I can't say I haven't had my money's worth with this pattern!



And as with the 1st "girly dress", I made a few modifications til it was right for me. It's easy to wear and great on a hot day. Looking at the photos taken last week though, it makes me shiver a little as our temperatures have plummetted and we have non-stop rain. Which makes for interesting child care conditions, as I'm sure you can appreciate. Still, at least we're not flooding as other areas are.



Please excuse the headless shots - the hair and makeup people hadn't been in that day ;-)

More creative goodness to see over here.

  5. Looks great on you, I have some of this fabric but am going to make the Shearwater top with it, as it will get a lot more use in "not hot" UK than a summer dress.

  6. Thanks for your lovely comments girls.
    Nick - I think the fabric would be really lovely in the Shearwater pattern, it's so soft to wear & such a beautiful design. Now I'm thinking I'll have to try to get my ands on some more and make the Shearwater too ;-)

  11. Lovely dress! Such a good idea to just go ahead and make it, instead of waiting for the perfect pattern. There'll always be another piece of fabric for that!

  12. Hey I like that shirring detail .. I'm going to steal this idea for my peasant top pattern to make it less boxy. Thanks! I do like that dress lots.
