Description

And this dress concludes my yo-yo obsession. It is constructed out of teal lightweight cotton and fully lined with a light brown polyester. The yo-yos are made out of linen, fancy cotton and silk.
It has a side invisible zipper. The ‘ball shaped’ skirt is gathered on the sides and meets the bodice with a yellow linen piping.

    Thanks all, you are too kind.

    Here is a tutorial for yo-yos http://zakkalife.blogspot.com/2009/06/how-to-sew-fabric-yo-yos.html They are so easy to make and so rewarding!

    I love how the yoyos cross the chest. Great job! I also agree that you should not end your yoyo obsession. They rock!

    I really don’t think you should be finished with your fabulous yo-yos! I love the way you make them, with the larger hole in the middle and with/without contrast within!

    This again is a lovely, lovely frock – I agree – the blue and yellow work really well together and that linen cord really gives it a lovely touch. x

    I love the colors that you used on this dress the blue and gold are a wonderful combination. Unless everthing in your closet has yo-yos on it I do not know why you need to declare that you are finished with them. You made a wonderful dress!
