I’m no expert when it comes to sewing clothing. It has taken the arrival of my darling little girl to make me get a bit better at it.
I fell in love with the pattern for this dress when shopping at my local stitchery one Saturday afternoon, and couldn’t leave it behind. I was told it was super-easy…
It wasn’t. It was probably the most challenging sewing project I have done all year.
Nevertheless, it was worth the trouble. It looks amazing, I love it every time I see it and now I know a whole lot more about making clothes. Can you believe I didn’t know what a yoke was until now?! 🙂
Here’s the front. I particularly love the little pockets with their red trim and little V’s at the top.
On the back, there’s a lovely fastening at the top. The lady who served me in the sewing store when I went to buy one button (15c, big spender!) thought I was nuts. The fabric I used was from Bonnie and Camille’s Scrumptious range (surprise surprise!).
If you are a better seamstress than I, you can get the pattern here.
Have a wonderful day!
