Well, fiddly-dee… No more spam problems (thank you, WordPress). Let’s do some sewing!
I love love this pineapple print from Girl Charlee. So much that I was willing to try a cotton/poly blend (poly is a bad word around here, unless it’s ITY or thread). And I must say, it was easy to launder and to sew. I’m very happy with it. Perhaps I’ve been too hard on poly 🙂
How cute is this print!
And what is summer without things like flamingos,
I’ve sewn this pattern so many times, but I had to re-print it and draft a smaller size for this version. Happiness…I’ve lost almost 40 pounds since October!! Side benefit: sewing things that fit me now.
Back to the pattern, which I really like. I’ve made it so many times, both short and maxi versions. Cute dress, lots of sleeve options, kind of the perfect knit dress for summer. I can’t find a pic of the line art, but here’s a link to the pattern (here.)
I want those shoes!
The front – slightly raised, and the back is raised as well. I really appreciate a little seam play – this pattern would have been blah without it.
Sewing notes – well, none. I sewed the size Small, and just added 3″ to the length. I’m 5’7″, and the additional length was mostly to get the dress to a length commensurate with my age (ha!).
I’m so happy with this dress. Hello, summer, I’m with you…
OK, those other things, like flamingos – I’m looking for the fabric!
Ciao – Coco
