Spring Dresses…

October 26, 2012

Leaving my Cambie woes alone at the moment, I wanted to show you this dress I finished up a week ago. It’s another version of this dress but with a deeper neckline, an added waist band and a gathered skirt instead of a pleated one. Again, I made my own bias binding for the arms – tutorial coming up! – instead of using the pattern facing. This is number 5 on my sewing table completed!

Sydney has been doing that strange Spring weather thing lately where we get really hot Summer days then in the blink of an eye it’s back to Winter again. So this is how I actually wore the dress that day – snuggled up in a vintage cardigan.

I can’t wait to wear this dress in proper summer weather – it has the perfect mix of work appropriate-ness that can also be dressed up for the evening.

What have you been working on lately?
