I love so many things about this pattern from my sponsor ZipZapKap: the pinafore styling, the ruffles, the sweetheart neckline, the pockets, the fact that it's a generous bust 36". I'm giving you ample time to go buy it before I do. Ready? Your time starts . . . now!
I've been dreaming of house dresses ever since our lovely discussion on the subject last week. I even bought some perfect fabric! Want to see? Pics after the jump!
Isn't this cute? I first thought they were little blue apples, but I suppose they're really flowers. In any case - very retro, no?
I'm especially excited to play with the grain on this fabric. I'm going to use the rows of apples as stripes, creating a chevron look, like in the lefthand view below.
But before I dive in, I'm going to stitch up my next muslin for the background dress, which has me feeling very demoralized. Sigh . . . I'm definitely going to need some advice from you fitting geniuses! More to come.
