Yes, this dress makes me look just like a Dalmatian dog (thought about trying to get a photo of me with one to show how I might blend in with it), but I do prefer to think that the fabric has pixellated ;).
This quick unpick/seam ripper is in one of our local parks and every time I walk past I want to get a photo with it. Well today was the day!
There are other objects in the park – here is what looks like the scroll and tuning pegs of a cello
Last time I made this dress I struggled to get enough fabric turned over for the elastic casing at the neckline. This time I allowed extra and it worked much better. This style of dress has to be one of the most comfortable I own. Expect to see more!
The dress is made from the Vogue 8592 previously made up here. This fabric is a bit more humdrum in terms of design, but I do love those spots! The fabric is a cotton knit and a bit stiffer than the pima cotton from Astratex so probably doesn’t drape quite as well, but it’s nice to get a different look with the same pattern.
When we called into the park we were on our way back from a friend’s really lovely birthday lunch and were feeling pretty chirpy.
Fabric is a stretch cotton remnant (what else?) from Knitwit
Pattern is Vogue 8592
Shoes are Django & Juliette from Zomp
Necklace is made from found objects by Sweet Salvaged Designs
I am also wearing a little anchor necklace which Archie bought for me in New York last year.
