Description

Another piece in my summer dress collection!

Pattern: McCalls M6833

Fabric is a jeans-like cotton with lycra fromm y big stack.

This time I wanted to play with bias tape, so I bought several colours of it and gave it a trial. Because I couldn´t decide, I asked my best critic and he chose purple – good for me, this matches my new shoes :-)

I still don´t have a belt in the same colour, but this doesn´t matter, there are many other colours on the dress :-)

    Lovely dress! Purple suits you! I like bias tape so much, my dad gave me one of those bias-tape-makers for Christmas. Also… Could I borrow your shoes, pleaaaaaaaaase?

      Such a good idea! I don’t have a bias-tape-maker, I DO need one! And yes, you can borrow my shoes when you come to Vienne :-))))
