I know it’s been a while (too much of a while…) since we’ve done a Wear Your Style Friday post. Sorry about that. But we’ve been very busy with pattern and fabric design around here lately.
I think this dress is right on trend in terms of color and fabrication, and that it looks wonderful on her! Here’s what Rose has to say about it.
I made the dress to wear to a friend’s recent wedding. I used blue eyelet cotton fabric with a scalloped selvedge edge. I used View B of the pattern with short sleeves, cutting the bottom and sleeves of the dress carefully to have the scalloped edge. I wanted the dress to hit me at the knees, so the complete View B length worked out, with no hemming, although I wish I had cut it about an inch shorter. I used an invisible zipper and let out the side seams a little; otherwise no other modifications. Because of the eyelet holes, I debated whether to add a lining, but decided to just wear a black slip underneath instead. I really enjoyed the pattern and love the fit!
You can see more of Rose’s creations on her blog. Thanks Rose!
