And the winner is…..
Dress number 2, in fabric number 3. I love this fabric! It’s by the lovely (and very tall) Heather Bailey. from her Nicey Jane collection, called the Lindy Leaf. I got it here. Did I mention that I got to have lunch with Heather at Revive? Yep, I did. Mandy was shooting me jealous looks the whole time.
So here’s the plan for the next week…
1. Wash and iron my fabric. This part is really important if you ever plan on washing your dress, because cotton shrinks, and that might not be pretty. There might be swearing involved.
2. Read the pattern instructions. Then read them again. Scratch my head and read them one more time. Think I understand them, then read them one more time and realize that I didn’t. Finally understand the pattern instructions.
3. Cut the pattern pieces, while praying fervently that I’m doing it right, so I don’t have to order more and wait a week to get it, and then do it all again.
4. Read the pattern instructions again. The Little Bee will most likely tell me I look “puzzled” because that’s her new favorite expression. She will probably be right.
In the meantime, here’s some more vintage eye candy for you. No, I will NOT be making any of these dresses…yet.
Um, no words.
This one was one of my original inspiration pieces, but I could not find a pattern with that gorgeous back! Anyone seen one?
Ice cream and vintage dresses. Color me happy.
This one is almost too beautiful. Almost.
Modcloth, how I love thee…
Not crazy about the fabric, but love love love those pockets.
Pockets are just, well, cool.
I love this color. Chantelle would look adorbs in this dress. Yes, I said it. Adorbs.
