remember my post awhile back about the bee’s requirements for clothing? since that conversation i’ve been making a real effort to compromise, and i think we’re both happier for it!
i fell in love with this fabric combination, but was seriously worried that the bee would not like the blue because it is dark. but she loves it too!
i think mostly because it “goes down, then out.” it’s very good for twirling and dancing.
and a sweet pink lining.
for my part, i think i did a lovely job of matching up the gingham. on this shoulder at least. let’s just pretend the other one looks as nice, shall we?
i’ve been a bit obsessed with gingham, well, for ever really. but lately i’ve wanted to combine it with all sorts of things. i made this dress as sort of a trial run for four (FOUR!) flower girl dresses that i will be making for my sister-in-laws late august wedding. i really want to combine gingham and tulle, and this pattern is a contender. however i’m not in love with the fully-lined and invisible zipper parts. i’m thinking of only lining the bodice and trying an exposed zipper, if that’s an easier.
