This dress I made last summer from an old pattern that my friend has at the moment. I'd forgotten about it until the other day. She dropped it off and I remembered it needs to be taken in under the arms as it is too wide as usual. It was a very fast make and made with some fabric I liked enough to buy as a remnant but not enough to make something truly serious. I do love this dress because it is cool looks different and is interesting. The white collar has ties and wraps around your waist.
This is the fabric that the little shirt is cut out from - it's a bit more green than this and I think a poly cotton that was also a remnant. Both are sort of wearable muslins and I hope the top is as easy and well drafted as the skirt. I think a nice easy pattern would be nice to have - one that just fits! I have more on the drawing board but think the painting needs some attention in the next few days.
