|The dress I saw in the store|
For this one, I had to teach myself how to make and insert piping. Also, how to sew in an invisible zip - properly! I think I did alright on both counts. Not perfect, but I was happy with my efforts for a first attempt.
The pattern I used was Simplicity 2270 - the sleeveless version, and I left out the pockets. I found some cute printed poplin at Lincraft that I was originally going to make a little white Summer shirt with, but decided to use it for this dress instead.
It's lined as the fabric was pretty thin and a bit see-through foe a dress, I thought. I just hope that doesn't make it too hot to wear in Summer. I Made a little rosette for the neckline from a scrap I had left over from a re-purposing project. Got to blog that one yet!
Lots of blue and white in this season's wardrobe. She's slowly coming around, but pink is still the all time favourite.
