Can we stop for a moment and discuss how incredibly and unreasonably cold it gets in New England (both before and after this photo shoot I was covered head-to-toe and there was a hefty dash of polar fleece in the mix.) Anyhow, I finished this sucker a good four hours before the wedding, so ..win! (I actually really like this patten, especially with the pockets, and plan to make a couple more.. although probably in the spring.)

I highly recommend it for its spinning-ness and general fluffy flouncing about. In all of these pictures I'm wearing it with a full crinoline, but it also works with just the dress. The pattern itself is was very easy to work with and the fit came together nicely. The only major change I put in, was to add pockets.
The fabric is a cotton lace, backed with cotton broad cloth -- meaning the whole thing is machine washable, which may make it my new favorite formal dress.

As always it's an immaculate fit. Looks fabulous and a brilliant formal dress ( if it can be machine washed, how perfect is that?!)ReplyDelete
thank you! (and it makes it great for travel - I'm wearing it again friday, minus the crinoline and with a cardigan)Delete
It looks great! And I'm with you - I love washable formal dresses :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! (its in the machine as I type.) (fingers crossed and paranoid)Delete
I do some of my best work when I'm under a time crunch. Great job! The dress is beautiful.ReplyDelete
