Beautiful, inside and out.

My fluffy dress got its first outing, and I got around to taking pictures.

This is the most thoroughly 'finished' dress I've ever made.  The pattern is a modified tried and true, B5748.  This time I went with a gathered skirt to best utilize the border print.

The crinoline is built in, all the rough edges are bound, fully lined.  You name it, it's there.

I used double fold bias tape on the crinoline hem, which brought attention to its frothiness.

 I also added a stealth pocket, hidden inside a pleat in the gathering.  (see above, for intense pockety sneakiness) 


  1. It's a lovely dress--so summery! I like how you used the border print.

    1. Thank you - its been in my stash for several years as I tried to figure out what to do with it.


I love to hear from people :)
