July’s challenge over at The Monthly Stitch was Mono Sewn.
I know its almost the end of August but I DID finish this dress in July just getting photo’s just didn’t happen in time!
I bought this pattern Deer and Doe Reglisse earlier this year and at Easter I got fabric for it from the Morelands sale.
The fabric I got was perfect for this challenge and gave me thee push I needed to make this dress!
A trip into town with a friend provided the perfect opportunity to get photo’s on Cuba Street
Until a tantruming toddler put a premature end to the photo shoot!
This post was then put on hold!
Then at my Mum’s house earlier this week I convinced her to take the rest of the photo’s I needed!
This pattern was pretty easy to make up, with only a few hiccups when it came to semi poor instructions for the collar construction.
Fabric used is a lovely rayon with such a nice drape that works well with this dress!
I love the little details in this pattern, the yoke shoulders with the gathering.
the simple collar with the bow, the little cap sleeves.
and the elastic waistband !
Even though this is a summery dress, it works well with a top under it too. This is handy considering its winter at the moment!
I love this dress and will definitely make another one … next time I will probably add pockets to the skirt as well dresses with pockets are the best!
