Here is my version of the vintage gingham dress I spotted on Etsy. I used a super similar little pale blue gingham lined in pale blue as well. I think the fit turned out pretty well despite not being 100% happy with darts but whats new.
The pattern only calls for lining the bodice but I went ahead and flat lined the skirt to prevent any fashion faux pas. I’m not sure if any other sewers feel the same but I remember when I first started sewing and I despised when something called for a lining and now I try to manipulate patterns in order to add a lining… oh growing up into a real adult sewer is fun!
My photographer extraordinaire was trying to get some new poses so logically he told me to look natural and lean into the bush. I think it looks pretty great!
All I need to complete the ensemble are some sparkly red shoes and a good ‘ol tornado! Maybe we could skip the tornado.
In other news I am becoming an extreme fabric and sewing supply hoarder eek! Does anyone know any crafty ladies or gents in the Phoenix area who could take some supplies off my hands?
Now onto my final draft of the Macaron!
