Description

For all those lovers of Audrey – This is my Funny Face dress. Something about the simplicity of the shape and the little pocket at the front reminds me of Jo Stockton before her famous transformation. Of course its a little shorter and a little brighter, but the inspiration remains the same.
In fear of sounding like a broken record, I admit that once again I have used the same patterns that I used for the last…3! dresses I have listed. This time however I used a smaller rectangle for the skirt, which I gathered onto the waist – this ended up giving me an almost tulip shape skirt which I quite liked. I cut the waist band in a contrasting red and used 1/2 inch rick rack on the waist band for a little decoration. I added one small pocket with a red top and some more rick rack.

If I were to make this dress again, however, I would probably reinforce the waistband with some light interfacing. As is now, I find it tries to roll up a little – but that aside I’m quite happy with it!

Material Notes

100% cotton drill. 1/2 inch cotton rick rack.
