Field of Poppies Hawthorn Dress

in Dresses,Modern Patterns

I picked up this beautiful fabric as my souvenir from MOOD while I was visiting L.A. I was really concerned I was going the fudge up the whole thing once I got to the button holes, but everything went way better than I had expected!

I think if I make this dress again I would need a small FBA, and adding a few inches to overall length. I don’t do above the knee very often, and it just feels kind of weird! If you want to see more photos or read more about what I thought once completing this dress, Check out my blog!

Lovely! And you need to wear dresses this length more often. It’s very flattering and youthful for you. Wait until you’re an old “grandma” like me to wear them below the knee.
