Austin, Texas, U...
Made for the Sew Weekly challenge of drawing inspiration from a beloved accessory, I made up a cameo-inspired version of Simplicity 2444. Underlined with coral cotton poplin, I used a polyester lace (cheap, as this was my first time working with lace) and made a coordinating coral-covered belt. I just love the end result. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day dress…only about a month early.
More construction details and pictures can be found at my blog, Idle Fancy.
