Also on the positive side? This dress. Which I actually made quite some time ago. I waited to blog about it, though, because
1) I'm lazy and
2) I had to wait for it to reach it's intended recipient...in Greece!
Remember this dress that I made back in 2012? Well, this one was destined for the same sweet, little girl. Her mom was nice enough to send me some pictures of her wearing it (how's that for an awesome recipient?), but I also happen to have some of C trying it on. Fortunately, she's a very willing model - when you bribe her with lollipops, which I'm obviously not opposed to doing.
The pattern is the Hanami dress pattern, version number 3 for those who are counting. And the fabric is part of the Silent Cinema line (JM48) that I purchased at our local fabric store. I kept the pattern vertical on the bodice and switched it up to horizontal on the skirt and I have to say that I love the way that it came out.
And of course I threw a little piping on the arms and the waist because everything's better with piping, right? The zipper is a pink invisible zipper which can't really be seen from the outside but really pops on the inside against the gray and white polka dot lining. And as for that hem - hand stitched, baby! It's the little things, right?
