This is why I love summer clothes so much: the bright colors!
Personally, my most successful project of this year.
It’s another example of the cap sleeve dress.
Gathering the skirt was a pretty bad idea: the structure and thickness of the fabric made me look quiet bulky :) So I had to go for pleats instead.
I added an extra dart in the bodice because of the gaping neckline and the bodice also had to be shortened.
Oh yes, I already had pink shoes that went quiet well with this dress, however, I found these ones having exactly the same color as the lightest dot of the fabric. Woohoow!
Pictures are taken by my ever patient boyfriend, in the Grand Beguinage of Leuven, where we have lived a couple of years.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
