This is what happens when you like pink and orange furnishings and clothing indiscriminately–you blend right in!
Here it is, un-camouflaged:
I used the basic shift pattern from the out-of-print Built By Wendy Dresses book and even made a muslin to test it out first–because it would be a shame to waste any of that enormous paisley fabric. (The fabric is from the stack I bought right before I closed).
This is the first of what I classify as “spring” sewing,* and it was all sewn up in my new craft room, and boy is it nice to have a space where I can just leave projects out. No more living in 500 square feet for me!
*I AM IGNORING YOU, FOOT OF SNOW OUTSIDE! I DON’T SEE YOU!!
That giant paisley fabric is really fab!
You know it’s a blind-hemmed rodeo with me!
That dress is as beautiful on you as it was hanging on the closet door! The craftsmanship is amazing!
Karen, where are you? I cannot see you among all the fabulous pinks and oranges.
