She did an excellent job describing all the steps with accompanying photos. Thanks Sharon!
It's been a while since I made the School Photo dress and because there's no time like the present, well, I made one during the sew-along.
The fabric a poly blend wool type micro check and the colour is egg yolk yellow and white. Perfect for spring.
Size 5. Lining is off white batiste.
The dress has a 60's Jackie Kennedy vibe to it, at least that's how I interpreted it the last 3 times I made this pattern.
First time around the dress looked like this:
For the second one I found some totally awesome thick polyester 60's fabric.
If I had found Go-Go boots for a toddler, I would have bought them to go with this dress.
For some unexplained reason, I need to put buttons down the front of the dress. As per usual there is piping: for this dress it's on the yoke and cuffs.
Initially, I was planning to make this dress in pale pink faux suede. Maybe it's called moleskin or microsuede. I'm not sure.
Anyway, we were in the midst of a week long blizzard and accompanying squalls and I couldn't get out to get a matching pink invisible zipper nor microtex needles. Having a white zip and some spring like fabric handy, I went with this instead.
The weather has cleared but the roads not so much. Therefore, it's a perfect day to stay at home and get some outdoor photos of the fauna ... it's too early for the flora!
