4th of July dress

Not my best quality photos

I’ve really been wanting to make something with this anchor fabric from Joann’s for well over a year, July 4th just seemed like a good excuse, right? To make it more festive, I decided to line the bodice with red sateen. Originally, I was also going to make a bow for the center of the bodice and a red petticoat, but time constraints put a stop to that!

The pattern is another one from Gertie’s latest book, which is kind of a mix and match type thing. This one is the surplice bodice and 3/4 circle skirt. FULL DISCLOSURE: while this pattern is lovely, it isn’t magic, I’m wearing a corset here. For more info, check out my blog, Sewn by Ashley

  1. Oh my gosh that dress looks stunning on you. But then everything I have seen you in looks amazing on you. Love the dress and the pattern and the cut. Cheers, Michele
