in Dresses,Jumbo Ric Rac

 

I have another finished project from Gertie’s Book for Better Sewing, it’s the sweetheart sundress made up in this adorable umbrella print cotton.  I also did a shirred back, a vintage detail that I am now obsessed with, it gives the bodice such a snug feeling. I also added one of my favorite things Ric Rac, two rows of it at the hem. It’s a navy and white striped Ric Rac, what could be better?

With “flattering” I mean the cut shows how gorgeous and feminine you are, not that it makes you look like you were! (I’m french, sorry if I don’t express myself so good in english…)

Twice the same comment, sorry, one took its time to appear on the screen, I thought it had got lost somewhere between China and the USA, maybe…
But I tried to improve my english in between…

As I was glancing over the photos I shouted out “RICKRACK! YES!”

…and then remembered I was not alone. Must not bring phone to department meetings anymore…

(nice work ;) )
