After 1 month of giving up sewing, I just had to get back on sewing and this is the first dress I made. I have had this fabric for 2 years and been wanting to make something out of it. The fabric has small Sakura(Cherry Blossoms) like flowers all over, along with larger flower which looks like plum blossoms. It is a little wired, because those two do not bloom at the same time. But together they make very Japaneses-looking fabric, I guess. Anyway it is perfect for spring!
The dress pattern is: The Sweet and Sassy Dress -Craftiness is not Optional
I made my bodice pattern, which ended up too big. I was following the tutorial and going to add elastic at the waist, so intentionally made it bigger...but what I did was made it TOO big. I made it during the night without trying it on Momo along the way. When she tried it on, it was clear she will not fit into it for maybe another 3 years ;0
Since the bodice was made more fitted, I skipped the elastic at the waist.
It has been colder than normal at this time of the year. Weekend rain has not been helpful either. I hope I can take Momo to a garden wearing this dress soon!
Linking up to those fun parties.
