I loved this fabric so I had to buy it, and then buy a pattern for a dress to make with it. This is actually a pretty complex pattern for such a simple looking dress. There's like, six godets, the top is fully lined, the ruffles seem to be done in the most complex way possible, the instructions are in engrishican, etc etc etc. But I pushed through it! i especially love that it is a faux wrap top with ruffles on the wrap part. tres cute.
It needs a new ribbon, I just grabbed something from my stash, I want something wider. Oh and something that isn't the backside of a patterned ribbon LOL.
The cutest thing about this dress? my HUSBAND helped me with it! so cute, i know. He pulled out the gathering stitches from the sleeves when I was done sewing the bodice, and he also helped pinning the godets onto the skirt pieces while i started sewing the other half of the skirt. Such a crap pinner, but I didn't say a word because I was just too tickled that he was helping.
funny what a baby girl will do to a man. This:
and then he starts making dresses.
(and yes, that is a canada flag down his pants in that first one, and fairy wings on his back in the second)
