Another week, another dress. Only it wasn't done this week (I'm far from being that quick and efficient), and this time it wasn't for me.
Having memories of my own growing up, I remember many times accompanying my mother to the sewing shop. Carefully picking out a pattern and fabric which Mum would sew into a pretty new outfit.
Of course it is a little different in this day and age. The picking and choosing was done online this time around. But all with the same intentions and it has hopefully been an enjoyable process for this girl.
Julia chose a fabric called Rooftop Garden, in Sunset, from the Grand Hotel range by Jenean Morrison. Such a pretty name.
I used Simpicity 2689, and it really was a breeze to sew up. Only a few hours over the course of a weekend. No zipper which I loved.
Julia seems quite pleased with her new smock dress. I'm thinking I wouldn't mind one for myself. It does look rather comfortable and loose for Summer.
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday.
