Had a busy day on Friday trying to get this little beauty finished. It’s only the tester but I’m delighted with the way it turned out… I’ll definately be whipping up a few more of these :D
I omitted the ruffle on the front bodice as I figured the material was busy enough. I remembered that I had some matching buttons (from the dress I deconstructed years ago) so I added them to the front. I think it looks sailor-ish… or a ‘candystriper’ (we don’t have them here, but I was watching the SATC episode where Carrie goes to look after Big post heart op… so that reminded me of it!!)
Love the pattern… try it :D
cotton, matching buttons, lining, interfacing
