One pattern – two styles

When I made the first summer dress recently I had some leftover fabric. Just enough to make a loose fit top with short sleeves. The zebra rayon is so lovely to wear. I used my own drafted pattern without bust dart and some extra width for the loose fit. The top is sewn with the… Lees verder One pattern – two styles

First dress for spring

French Terry The fabric for this lovely dress I bought a while ago. I fell in love with the retro print. It’s a super nice french terry, so it’s a little ticker than a cotton knit and of course perfect for spring.
