Girls in White Dresses With Blue Satin Sashes

Ok, well it’s actually cotton, not satin. But you get the point! I finally got outside to take some final photos of my Crepe dress by Colette Patterns. I participated in Gertie’s Sew-Along and managed to stay on track for the most part… I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. I’ve always loved the feminine look of eyelet and have been coveting a white dress for summer for quite awhile now… Mission accomplished!

    Really lovely and totally fits the “sound of music” title you gave it. Really sweet! I love the blue sash.

    So pretty! Oh, you would totally blend in in The Sound Of Music. This is very much a dress to wander about the Alps in and form a singing group. Well done.
