Natty's New Blue Dress

Added Apr 19, 2009

by nattyjane

Berkeley, Califo...






I just realized that most of my fabric is blue, so here comes yet another blue dress. I made this dress because I wanted to play around with sewing a bib front. The straps for this dress tie, but I like to make little bows at the back rather than at the top of my shoulders. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, although I have been thinking of possibly changing it into a tank top rather than a dress.

Material Notes

Cotton, elastic, and buttons.

    hey if it blue suits you then stick with it! I’ve realised the same thing…just stock piling colours that work with my skin and hair etc.

    i absolutely love all of your creations. excited to see what you sew up next .

    have a great day, Allison

    Great summery dress! I like the ties at the back too. Do you have a close-up photo of the bib part?

    I like the bib. Keep it as a dress, it’s super cute as it is.
