Houston, Texas, ...
This was done a year ago, but better late than never, right? (Pictures were a bit rushed, sorry about that) It’s a dress and jacket made on commission – an acquaintance approached me with some fabric she’d been given as a gift, wanting to turn it into a dress, so I drew up a couple designs and this is what we decided on. There was enough turquoise fabric left to make a jacket, so I did a bolero to go with it also. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, especially since it was only the third time I’d ever sewn for someone besides myself and the first time I’d ever drafted a pattern for someone else. Also, matching up prints is… uh, tedious (that front side seam is intentionally off, if anyone’s wondering!) Some day I plan on digging out that jacket pattern and making myself one…
100% cotton all around, for the dress, jacket, waistband, and all the linings.
