Apple of my Eye Dress

Added Nov 27, 2011

Wellington, New ...






Apples, 1950’s full skirts, and pockets – what more does a girl need for summer?

Made for the Make It Your Own theme week over on The Sew Weekly.

The bodice is from Burda Style 02/2011 #101 and the skirt is from McCall’s 3411 from 1955.

It’s made from a pure cotton, and I fully lined it in pale blue so it’s easy to wear in winter as well without that clinging-to-your-tights thing going on. (Lets face it, battling your skirt all day so it stays where it’s meant to just isn’t that much fun.)

There are more details over on my blog if you’re interested.

Material Notes

100% cotton, and fully lined in basic taffeta (?) lining.




Summer, Spring

    The dress is beautiful and the fabric is to die for. I love the pale blue background for the apples.

    I absolutely love the fabric and the style that you made your dress into. You look lovely in it, especially with those red shoes.
