The Lemonade dress
I made this dress a couple of months ago using a lemony print seersucker purchased from Ebay.
It was actually a tablecloth, so it took a lot of unpicking of the edges before i could actually start sewing the darn thing!
|I just realized how strange my legs look in this shot. It looks like they are back to front... they are crossed but hmm|
It was made using the same self drafted pattern as the black & white gingham dress and is lined in a yellowy mustardy coloured cotton voile. Its perfect and swishy for a lovely summers day... even though summer is over...
It was a breeze to sew, the only thing I changed was to bring the neckline up a bit....
No peek-a-boo bra this time!
I'm thinking of letting the hem down a bit, the length doesn't look quite right... what do you guys think??
It matches the yellow petticoat too :-)
|check out the 5 inche hem with pretty yellow ribbon :-)|
I did also try a new method...
The hand picked zipper that I have been wanting to try for SO long.
It is surprisingly easy (And I hate hand sewing (Well no I don't hate it, just havn't practiced enough)).
I used a vintage yellow zipper that I got in a bulk lot from Etsy.
Its so sturdy!
|SO not close enough to see the hard work on the hand picked zip! Dang!|
Anywho... I have lots of fabric piling up so I better get back to the trusty machine.
Thats all for now folks!
