How amazing it is to be able to dress like that in February! This is one of the many reasons I love Valencia…
I made this dress before Christmas and it has been one of my favourites ever since. I am already sewing another one in blue with short sleeves.
I lve the flirty flounce, the hidden pockets, the button placket… And the pink fabric of course! I mean, I wear so much pink it’s actually hard to believe my favourite colour is blue (I swear it is!).
You might have recognised the fabric, it’s the same one I used for the petal coat. I have tried wearing the two garments together and I have to admit that even if such sweetness is not for the faint of heart, I love the matchiness of the outfit.
Lately, I have been experiencing and learning about patternmaking and my last projects have almost all been self-designed. This one follows the same rule.
It was fun to incorporate all my favourite elements in one dress and make it work as a whole. The pockets were particularly exciting to design.
The overall loose shape allowed me to have a placket opening at the back instead of the regular zipper one, but I don’t even need to open the buttons to pass the dress over my head.
I hope you like it as much as I do and hopefully I will be able to show you the spring version soon.
