Summer is hot! This dress turned out so cute, I think it cools the evening off!
Pattern: Simplicity 1926, View A
Fabric: Michael Miller print, Aqua pique
Pattern Review: This is not a beginner's pattern. The pleats and front placket are cumbersome. I made a size 8 dress and followed the size 12 length. After the dress was complete, my dear daughter complained about it opening too much around the neckline. (It really did.)
So back to the drawing board to add a touch that would "close up" the opening that I spent a good chunk of time "opening." Kari Mecca's book, More Sewing with Whimsy, came to the rescue. Officially by her book, the flower is called "Swirl flowers with whimsy stick trim."
I hope you enjoy my pictures.
My husband bought a new lens that arrived today that takes awesome pictures!
