Blue and White Laurel Dress

Added Apr 25, 2013

by melissaormonde

Arroyo Grande, C...






Here’s my submission for the Collette Patterns Laurel Contest. I made it in a blue and white cotton fabric which has a pattern woven in, sort of like a houndstooth. I added a faux peter-pan collar, sleeve, and pocket details and trimmed them with mint green piping and green vintage buttons. I also added 3 inches to the length, slightly lowered and widened the neckline, and added waist darts for a little more shape.

I’ll be posting more details about this project on my blog, Scavenger Hunt, if you’d like to check it out:

    You look gorgeous and sexy! I wish that I could wear that cut of dress. You look spectacular! The proportions are spot on,…. Even the collar is just a perfect width… It doesn’t overpower the dress. The dress is very elegant. Great job!
