Up next, and like a year later we got into knits and knit dresses. The spotted, red and pink dresses above are various views of the Hexham Dress and the long black dress with white checks is an Atrax Top & Hexham Dress mashup that has been lengthened.
My recent dress making has been back to my lovely woven fabrics! Gorgeous A+R pink linen got made into a Melba Dress, and this very structured gold fabric got a flounce added to its hem for this fishy Melba. My most recent dress was another Melba, this time in peachy seersucker fabric with a very gathered skirt added onto the bottom.
This fabric from Lady McElroy almost got away from me! I spotted it, loved all the colours and the cool things on it but then it sold out! I used my internet sluething skills and eventually found some in-stock at Sew Me Sunshine in the UK! I decided that I wanted it, held my breath and ordered without working out the currency conversion.
This is one of my 7 Waikerie Shirts and Waikerie Dresses that are in various states of completion- This dress has been sitting almost completed for quite a few months now and I finally put some buttons and button-holes on this tencel/linen stripe fabric.
I’ve made View B of the Waikerie Dress (with mitered corners and a high-low hem), and this is my first Waikerie Dress with short sleeves
