A Pocket Full of Posies

Added Dec 11, 2013

This fabric was an impulse buy a few months back. It was winter, and this is so spring-y that I couldn’t resist! I had the yellow left over from my Check. Mate. chess pieces top, and it was a great match.

The dress itself is a combination of patterns.

The bodice is from Simplicity 2180, the same as my The Stars dress. I accidentally cut the back v-neck contrast band with the wrong end on the fold, so I had to add in the narrowest of narrow seams as there wasn’t enough fabric to cut a new piece.

The skirt is the same as on my Time And Relative Dimension In Sewing dress, and I seem to have not written down the pattern number. I also left off the contrast hem band, as I didn’t have enough fabric left for that. I prefer this skirt to the one that came with the bodice, as it has great pockets. The Simplicity skirt was just a gathered rectangle, and I’d added side seam pockets to The Stars, but this skirt has much deeper, better pockets!

    Nicely done! What a great way to use up your scraps as the accent band. I like it better without the bottom band too, I think it pulls the focus up to your face!

    Cute dress, really like the contrast bands. It does indeed look spring-y – looking at the cold grey British winter outside, I’m jealous!
