Here's my latest sun dress project. My boy is from Melbourne so it's an homage.

Thanks for the comments. I never can understand why I can't get much feedback. I guess I need to be more exciting with my posts!

Cute dress and cute fabric! What did your boy think?

Did you use a pattern? I think the style would flatter most.

Thanks! Finally got some comments! I did use a pattern, an old OOP one that I've done 3 times in various styles.
The boy liked it.

It's a lovely and flattering style.

I didn't quite understand where you got the pattern.

"an old OOP"  Huh

The dress is cute, but IMO the fabric just makes it. So many of the prints in fabric stores are too commercial, trying too hard, and lack the happy innocence of this one. Good use of the ribbon trim, too.

I don't care how old I get, I'm still going to wear great prints, including juvenile, when I find them. You do it too, okay?

I really love the shape of the dress and the fabric is cute! It's subtle enough where you can wear it anywhere and people wont' think you've stepped off the stage in a musical! I want to wear more 50's inspired things but I'm always afraid people will wonder why. I don't think anyone would think twice about this. It's really cute!!
