It's been a loooong time since last posted anything but I want to get back on track again :))
what would be more suitable than a very summery post about a very
summery dress...ok i can think of many more suitable things to post
about now that it's getting colder and we're nearing Halloween etc, but
the truth is that i was supposed to post about this dress before the
summer started and then...the summer started and I forgot...
posting it now and if not for anything else then at least as a reminder
that the summer will return in about ...9 months ;D
But anyways let's get to the business...
So my sister in law gave me a
bunch of really airy and light white blouses and at the time I was
planning on wearing them during the summer...and then I cut them to
pieces and made children's dresses :D
I used a pattern from a craft magazine I had in my stash. This differs from the post I made about re-purposing a men's shirt into a girl's dress in
a couple of ways. Firstly the bodice and the skirt are two separate
pieces. I wanted to maintain the interesting look the fabric had
originally so I cut the front piece of the bodice out of that and then I
wanted the skirt part to be quite gathered and flowing so I pleated the
skirt to the bodice.
I left the sleeves loose instead of shirring them like I did with
the other dress.It came out pretty much exactly as i wanted it and I
will definitely make her a couple of these for next summer, too :))
Hope you have a beautiful autumn day!!
PS. Looking at these pictures I realized HOW MUCH Tindra has actually grown during the summer :))
