We have had some cool days even here in Texas. I have been waiting for the cool air to arrive so I can make something using this pink flannel shirting I got last winter. I bought the fabric to make a simple peasant dress, but never got around to it. I still wanted to make an A-line dress, but I wanted to try something different.
I made a dress using this tutorial: Gathered Button Dress -Craftiness is not Optional
This was a dress I have been meaning to make all summer, and now that summer is over I have made it using flannel shirting and longer sleeves.
Overall this was a quicker project for me, and I am happy with how the dress turned out. But of course there were few issues, as usual for my projects ;)
1. I had problems matching the plaids, and now I know the perfectly matched plaids are works of art.
2. I placed the button closure in the back a little too low. I had to attach an additional hook closure.
Linking up to those fun parties.
