I’ve talked for ages about throwing a cup-cake party, but I never got the dress finished… Well, deadlines are what works for me apparently! This only took me two days, and the occasion (deadline) was my birthday! I invited my great girlfriends over for cup-cakes and coffee, and the cup-cake dress felt perfect! The pattern is as usual based my own basic block from the course I did at London College of Fashion last year. I cut a 3/4 circle skirt with pockets, and chose to make a front seam and straight grain in the middle of each panel in order to avoid strange looking pattern (like my amanita dress). All I need now is a petticoat!
Gorgeous cotton from Robert Kaufman, ‘Sweet Tooth’.
