Summer is here along with the heat.
I bought this fabric with a pre-smocked top section. I loved the fabric but not how the smocking effect looked on me so I cut that off and made a cute sun dress. I will save the smocking portion for a future summer bag.
The neck treatment is parachute rope from the craft section of the fabric store. I could not believe I found the exact match for the purple color.
This dress is McCall’s 6115. I have made this 3 times already. It is very simple to make and many many choices to customize.
My accessories for the above picture was our kittens Minnie and Muffin – aka – The Minnie Muffins.
I am very glad that I took a look at my earlier version (from Muslin to Dress) of this dress and decided to recreate. I used my own pattern created from a ready to wear princess dress that I really like. The results are great and I have worn this look many times!
Sometimes the best end result comes from starting over……..
Princess seam dress
All ready to go…..
This is Pamela’s Pattern #115 – Softly Pleated Dress. This was a joy to make. The dress has lovely pleats at the waist . The pattern has quite a few selections of sleeves and necklines so the possibilities are really almost endless. The fabric is a drapey knit that was a breeze to sew. The fabric was purchased at Steve’s Sewing & Vacuum in King of Prussia, PA. I already have plans to make another dress with this pattern. Spring is on the way….soon!
