Cherry Bomb

January 7, 2016

Over the holidays I made my middle daughter a new dress. I used the Violette Fields Ginger Dress. I love the vintage chic look and it turned out very well. This description of the pattern pretty much says it all: “Ginger Misses incorporates retro elements that are figure flattering on all shapes and sizes. The bodice includes a vintage collar, waist tabs, front darts and halter tie straps.”

I changed the halter tie to straps since I felt it would be a little more stable for my very active daughter! Pockets are included and since in my daughters eyes no dress is complete without them I made sure to put them in. (Sometimes I want to skip the pockets and save myself 10 minutes but no more!)
