Here’s a dress that I designed and made back in August. I fell in love with this fabric from the first moment I spotted it. There's just something that's so much fun about a bold print dress. When I was drafting the pattern I had the 1950s in mind, because nothing says 1950s more than a fitted bodice with full and flirty, gathered, skirt. The dress is made from a light linen and is fully lined with an invisible zipper in the back. There are hidden pockets in the side (I'm a sucker for pockets) and pleating detail on the bottom of the skirt.
I was so excited when a while back Micaela Hoo of the Drifter and The Gypsy asked me to be a contributing sewing/DIY columnist for her new website that she just launched. This first tutorial is on making horizontal pleats like in the dress that I made in this post. You can check out the tutorial here.
If you have any type of a sewing tutorial that you'd like to learn either comment or send me an e-mail and I'll see about making a tutorial (:
I hope that you're all having a wonderful Wednesday so far!
P.S. This dress will be for sale in my Etsy shop next week along with my Wildflower Print Dress and others that I haven’t shown yet.
