A Hint of Lime Dress
This is one of the project that I finished this summer...that luckily has been worn a ton! It was a quick, easy sew and I love the color of the kiwi green linen with the vintage fabric on the pockets.
I didn't take any pictures as I was making it (to tell the truth I was totally winging it), but I basically used a raglan-sleeve dress pattern (self-drafted) with a gathered neck and arms and bias tape to hold the gathers in place.
I am working on a similar dress for fall with three-quarter sleeves, so I will take pictures as I go on that one and give a tutorial. But it might take a couple of weeks to get to it.
In other news, my little-lady dress form is in need of some repair.....a certain two year old thought it might be fun to climb her. So, if she looks a bit like the leaning tower of Pisa, it's because she is leaning something fierce. (Hence the pockets looking so crooked in this picture......ahh the life with a toddler!)
Any fun projects you are working on this week?
