Last summer's dresses- Part 1
Must blog about these while I still vaguely remember making them. Miss S wore all of these a heap last summer, yet I seem to have next to nothing in the way of photos with her in them.
First up we have the Oliver + S Ice Cream Dress (which first appeared in this post ages ago).
This was worn through most of last year- in cooler months layered with a white long sleeve top and red tights. A lovely pattern, beautiful inside and out (I did French seams). The strawberry fabric was scrap left over from a dress of mine from Uni days. Miss S loved it and it got heaps of compliments. I will definitely be using this pattern again.
Next we have this Raggedy Ann print sundress made using this tutorial.
Very easy pattern and looks great on (much better than on the hanger). The border print fabric was left over from a dress of my sister's- and I think I still have enough for another dress! Trim fabric is Spotlight Spots and Stripes.
Here is Miss S looking very grumpy in it.
I do remember the straps slipping off a bit- maybe need to tweak the placement next time.
Other dress details to come!
