Description

A dress in this fabric has been a long time coming for me. It’s Liberty of London Madras Check Hyderabad E. After looking at it so many times I finally bought it recently.
The name of the dress comes from my work. Each year at my work we have a christmas/end of year decorations competition on our floor. This year there was a theme, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Our branch made a beach-themed diorama, complete with offcuts of the roses on this fabric as garden and repurposed sign edited from making it happen to making summer happen. I wore the dress – and we won!
I love how this dress – or this “chic little model” as the instructions describe it – looks. The square neckline is a nice difference, and having a side zipper instead of a back zipper gives it a cleaner look. It has very simple darts in the front and back, extending up slightly over an inch from the waist. The very minimal sewing still allows the dress to fit well but also have a lot of ease of movement.
