Description

This is my third version of this pattern. I highlighted the seams with decorative embroidery thread and I like very much the result.

    and this was your summer dress number….137 perhaps? :D the colour is sooo dreamy, and my goodness, how did you make the topstitches so perfectly aligned like that?? i raise my hat off to you, dear! you are one amazing seamstress!

      lol saxsilverain! it is true that I made many dresses this summer, maybe not 137 but sure way more than I could wear lol. Your lovely and generous comments made my night, hugs ad kisses and sorry for the delayed answer.

    Very romantic variant:-) I like its pure fitting, gentle and fresh colour and the way you emphasized the reliefs. Looks well and creates a new image for you – a look of an airy and dreamy girl!

    What a lovely dress liliv, you are certainly rocking the dresses lately. I thought the top stitching was piping as well. You look great and this colour and style are fab on. You x

    Another lovely colour for you! The topstitching looks very interesting, I love such details. What kind of stitch did you use, zig zag?
