Striped Sparky Dress
This past month, I participated in my first Sew-Along in a long long time, the Summer Spark Sew-Along. It was manageable so I signed up! I spent June working on the Sewaholic Lonsdale Dress pattern. As I’d previously mentioned, I decided to attempt stripes, so I had to test out how the bodice worked cut on the bias. Now you can see the complete result! I love it!
The dress is actually really comfortable, and gosh I love those pockets!
The stripe matching isn’t perfect but it makes me happy! I like the colouring of the fabric too – the blues are nice enough for spring/summer but the brown makes this also wearable for autumn/winter seasons (esp. with my brown leather boots above!).
You may have noticed there is a new addition to my sewing family, my new dressform! It is mainly for working on my collection but serves very helpfully as my model for my own personal projects too. It was purchased with the help of a very special gift- an amazon gift card from my awesome brother and his lovely fiance! Thanks dudes!
Well do you think it has enough spark?! I do.
