Project Sewn:: Week Two // The Sundress

Here we are for WEEK TWO of Project Sewn. A HUMONGO thanks to all of you who voted last week— that was so much fun!
This weeks theme is The Sundress. And I couldn’t be more thrilled about it!
I. Love. Dresses. + this one I made is no exception!

I was sew inspired by this Pat Bravo print from her Carnaby Street line for Art Gallery Fabrics that I knew I needed to make something from it. It has a bit of a vintage feel, so I went with it, y’all. I think it was the perfect fabric choice for this week’s theme!

I took the basic design of the Jamie Dress by Sis Boom and increased the neckline to make it a high-necked dress. Instead of straps, I made a casing & tie around the neckline. I extended the sashing around the waistline to tie into a bow in the back and I made the skirt fuller than called for. I have never really self-drafted anything, so this is as close as it comes for me!

This dress makes me want to jump on an old-fashioned bicycle with a cute little basket and ride around town to run my errands in it!! I. Am. Obsessed. Also, who doesn’t love a good Dr. Pepper out of a bottle with a paper straw?! 😉

  1. LOVE IT! You look darling! And I agree…anything in a bottle with a paper straw is like, quintessential summer stuff. Around here it’s cheerwine {made with real sugar, of course} in the bottle. Yum. Just voted!
