Can you even spot me in this field of flowers? I like to think I blend right in, a bit like one of the persons on an impressionist painting. It’s all in the mind, yes? Isn’t that what impressionism is about?
For this dress I used the bodice of the BHL Elisalex dress. I’d muslined and adapted it for my Siena dress, so I knew it fit well and I just can’t get over how easy to sew it is. of course you eagle eye will have spotted that it’s not hemmed yet – but this is only best practice for a bias cut skirt, isn’t it and could in no way be attributed to me putting the dress on before it’s finished 😉 .
I just love the back neckline of the dress. It’s suitable for daily wear, but it’s a bit more exciting than a normal round neckline. For this dress I added a kinda-half circle skirt. Kinda because I didn’t have enough fabric for a full half circle skirt – stupidly I had self-lined the bodice and waistband without thinking about fabric requirements for the skirt. Oh well…
So I’ll leave you with my by now infamous “I`m little and I know it” pose. I’m off to sew some jumpsuits for #jumpingintojune!
