The Hat

Hat from Vogue 7464 (View C). I didn't follow directions, and used fabric to match my dress instead of the recommended taffeta, so it looks more floppy than it probably should, but I sort of like it.

The Dress


Butterick 5598 in cotton lined with iridescent purple satin-like fabric. Oh, I also made the thermal top and bottoms out of classic white waffle cotton.


I substituted a hood for the collar variations... big suprise, right? ;-) I love me some hooded dresses!


(Hello, my real skin tone. Nice to see you again. My photos tend to be washed out or I'm wearing pale make-up a lot, for some reason...)
You can see the fabric's print better in this photo. It's a quilter's cotton. They always seem to have the best designs, so I break rules and use them for apparel when I can. You can't really see it in any of the photos, but it buttons up (double-breasted). This was my second foray into covered buttons. They are actually quite fun, and the perfect match to the garment is very classy :-)

Great outfit. I love the hat. It doesn't look that floppy to me. I am also a fan of using quilters cotton, partly because the only shop in town with sewing supplies and fabric is a quilt shop.
