yellow bird dress

Los Angeles, Cal...






here’s a simple little tunic dress i whipped up in just a couple hours. i used Built By Wendy 3964, but i wanted it to be a quick and easy project so i didn’t bother with the inset nor the sleeves. instead of sleeves, i finished the armholes with some ready-made bias tape with a contrasting floral pattern. i’m quite happy with it!

Material Notes

main fabric is a woven cotton with some stretch (“bird seed” by alexander henry fabrics)

    You’re fabric choices are inspiring! So often I go with the “safe” choices and end up with blah looking projects. The mix you have here is just perfect.

    Love it! I’m really craving cute dresses at the moment but as i’m breastfeeding they’re too impractical for me to wear. :(

    I absolutely love that, especially the print of the fabric and the bias tape around the armhole. I think the belt looks great with it, but I imagine it looks just as good without it! Well done! You’ve given me some ideas now. I am normally reluctant to try mixing fabrics like you’ve done because I worry it’ll not work, but just looking at some of your creations, I can see it is possible to do! :)

    I also think the fabric is fantastic, and that the belt is great. and the contrasting bias trim is unexpected but fresh. I like it a lot!

    Great dress! I wish I could whip up a dress in a couple hours! It’s great you got your hands on the birdseed fabric. I think it’s one of the best prints ever!
