the blue dress
I know, this dress is kind of very granny-ish looking... but I like it nonetheless. The fabric was given to me by an aunt years ago and it was sort of a test run for using the same pattern with this Lecien fabric which I don't seem to have the courage to cut.
The pattern is nr. 22 from this book and I had a few issues with it. As always with Japanese patterns for me, it was large in some places and tight in others, and I need to add darts to make the pieces more fitted.
I don't think I'll be using the Lecien fabric to make another of these, so I'll have to search for another suitable project. That said, I do like the dress and I'll probably wear it a lot this coming Fall...
