Flowery Tara Dress

Added Nov 3, 2008

by camilaustral

Concepción, Chile






I finally finished it, it was in my “to finish” pile, there was only the armhole binding unfinished, because i don’t like bias tape…

But i just hemmed the armholes with decorative stitch.

I lenghten the pattern with the “lenghtening lines”, so is not so wide at the bottom hem as other i’ve seen.

I’m not crazy about the fabric, i just found it in the attic and i really wanted to try this pattern (yay! for free stuff :D)

My favorite part are the sleeves, i love them :)

I wanted it to be just a liiiiitle longer, but i had problems with the hemming, so i just did a narrow zig zag stitch to finish.

I’m going to close a little the neckline, or maybe adding a little triangle to cover up a little.

Thanks for reading! plase comment :)

    Great dress! I think the fabric really suits the dress and I wouldn’t close up the bust area, the dress looks wonderful! perfect for summer, well done!

    Wow. this fabric is absolutely beautiful. It makes Tara dress so special. When I finally will make this dress for myself, I will use that kind of bond fabric too. Congrats !!!

    I quite like the fabric and the top-stitching looks good. I have made this as a dress as well. It is in my “finishing” pile too. I dont know what I did wrong but it just doesnt look right. I will get round to fixing it one day……
