flower dress

June 29, 2013

This was originally what I called the “flower dress” because of the obvious flower.  But as I made some of the other styles, I started to add flowers so it’s no longer this pattern’s USP but instead really the only feature.  It’s the most basic dress I’m making with just a simple A-line shape and still fully lined.  And it’s in the bargain bracket, selling for just £16 ($25), so it’s a steal!

It seems a bit dull now but I wanted to offer a cheap choice.  Due to its simplicity, the fabrics and additions of buttons and flowers really make the dress (and of course the little beauty wearing it).

This particular dress shown is using the “Sophie” range from Chez Moi for Moda.  It was leftover from the twins’ quilts I made in April and it’s so delicious. 
The flower is reinforced around the edge but also intended to fray (fluff?) a quarter inch to add a bit more character.  
I’d happily spend £16 on this so hopefully others will too…
