The description on Fabric Mart's site used words like "blueberry" and "strawberry" to describe this plaid. Its colorful, its lovely, its almost impossible to be sad while wearing it. I've pretty much written everything I can about this dress, so here's photos!
Time to make: Oh, given fitting about 40 hours, but a second one with no pattern matching would probably take about 10 or so.
Cost: The fabric and lining together set me back about 24 dollars. For a silk dupioni fashion fabric and rayon lining. Notions were from my stash.
Make Again? Yes!
Check out that pattern matching. I totally rule!
What's that, its not lined up on the side skirt but still looks right? How does that even happen?
This dress would totally rock a crinoline, too, but since its for work, that'd be kinda obnoxious.
Check out my matching belt! I used fabric cut on the bias with Sunni's Stella Kit. These are totally awesome, go buy some!
I decided not to do a hidden zipper. This fabric is so loud, how'd you notice anyway? Also, I'm proud of my belt loops.
And with a twirl and clicking of heals I say have a good day! I hope this cheers you as much as it did me.
