These dresses are so cute! It looks like you used NL 6557? I have had that one in my stash for a long time, I could never figure out what to do with it... Yours are fabulous! I especially love the second dress, too!  Cheesy

This is wonderful! I notice the belt in the back, does it tie in the front? Did you make your own pattern? I love the teardrop shaped shoulders and the shaping in the back of the dolman. It looks great on your dressform and would smashing on a real person! Very flattering!

Thanks for all the comments! Sorry, I don't have any pictures of how it fold up, but you're right: it just tri-folds then folds over into the embroidered pocket. Just like the ones in the original post (where I got the idea):


Yay! I love tie-dye and eco-friendliness too!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Hippie Batik Mehndi-Embroidered Singlet Shopping Bags! on: March 12, 2008 06:54:41 AM
I needed to make a gift for my fun-loving, India-loving, hippie friend's birthday and I decided to make some ever-popular singlet shopping bags so she can transport groceries in psychedelic hippie style!

I found some mehndi motifs on the internet and embroidered the pockets in jewel-tone embroidery floss to match the batik. The bags fold into the pockets and make very nice little hippie pouches. The pockets and lining fabric are the same, a yellow/purple/orange/green/brown tie-dye.

Unlike the main post that suggested 1/2 yard of fabric, I used 5/8 yard of 45" wide fabric and had tiny snippets of scraps left over. I finally got to use my new serger, (Singer Quantumlock 14T967DC - aka "light at the end of my stress tunnel") and I serged all the seams and topstitched.

Here is a close-up of the elephant (poorly centered photo, by c'est la vie!):

I think I like the polka-dotted batik one more... What do you think?

OH MY GOD!! This is fabulous!! I love the hot pink and tulle and I love your ruffle hem with the aligned row of flowers! It fits you like a glove and looks great! I have been sewing for many, many years and rarely am so impressed with someone's handiwork; you've done a wonderful job!

It is SOOOOOO cute! Now, you just have to find a garden tea party to crash.  Wink

I made two of these. The one on the left is from your pattern, I used 3.5" (side measurement) squares and got an overall diameter of ~5".

The one on the right is the pattern that I found (and begun) before you posted your tutorial. Using the same 3.5" (side measurement) squares, I got an overall diameter of ~6". I think this one looks very "loose", indeed the joinery is not as secure as your model.

Which one do you all like better?

Now to just find pretty double-sided paper...
