Honestly when I saw the fabric on the bolt I had to control myself from asking for the rest of it...I loved it that much! Better yet it was on clearance, why it was I'll never know but I will joyfully rejoice at my good fortune.
So 2.5 yards later I have a dress and just over .5 yard left to make something equally as delightful...perhaps I'll make a Jane with a Pop top or a big flouncy bag.
Okay, okay I'll stop lolly gagging and show you the photos, which I might add were harder to upload and edit than it was to take.
|Yes I pose for tripod timer photos!|
|I even have a little fun being silly.|
|The back...by far the easiest picture to take|

So what do you think? Lovely right? I thought as much :) Still here are the specs...
Pattern: Simplicity 3722...length style B without lace trim (couldn't find a link sorry)
No modifications to pattern but I did add the lace at the straps...it just wasn't wide enough to cover the proper undergarments ;) So as I was dyeing some socks (more on that later) I threw in the lace for an orange tint to it for a a matchy matchy look. I like it.
I think it is the perfect dress as this fall/winter I can throw a sweater over it...perhaps my Summer Sweater KAL...put on some leggings or maybe some skinny jeans and add a little Orange Sunshine on the colder days! However, I am now in need of some really sweet orange pumps...lemme know if you find a great deal somewhere!
Tell me do you love it or like it? Have you been making anything lately? I have a few more projects to show off to you guys this week and I'd love to hear what you've been up to as well!
