Tropical Heidi

Added May 5, 2008

by yoshimi

, Japan






I made a Heidi dress with tropical floral print (and even a hat matching to the dress) for our one-day trip to a botanical garden where thousands of rhododendrons were at their best. Unfortunately, it was shockingly foggy and I have to say it wasn’t a good day for photographs… we had a great fun (in the jungle-ish) day though!

Material Notes

pale-tone linen/cotton floral fabric for the dress, yellow-white row silk and some left over from the dress for the cloche





Thanks BurdaStyle!

for the cloche, the book “Stylish Cloche”

    Thank you all for the comments! I’m so thrilled to know you like it. BTW I’ve moved my strange drawing of “the ribbon for Heidi” to my Flickr page from my profile page.

    Thank you all, for your kind comments! fashion1, yes, that is THE reason why I love this print ;). For oonaballoona, I guessed you might like to know the size for the ribbon I used before you try your good fabric, for just an example … please come&check one of my profile photos if you like. I couldn’t upload here since it’s slightly wider than it should be here.

    It’s beautiful, it makes me want a Heidi dress of my own (but I shouldn’t, I have too many projects already)
