Sunlit Teal Garden Lonsdale
Added Aug 14, 2011
I made this Lonsdale during Tasia’s Lonsdale Sew-Along. I used a teal floral Japanese cotton and added a grosgrain ribbon waistband for contrast and texture. I altered the straps so that the dress could be tied in a halter. I also added spiral steel boning to support the back. I just love this dress. The gold in the flowers gives a wonderful sheen to the fabric; there’s just enough swoosh in the skirt for a bit of fun; and the fitted bodice has such a neat twist to it.
