Amy Dress

That moment when someone in your family is getting married and it's taking up all your time after you just got your blogging groove back. Whoops. But I'm back again with another self drafted dress. After this post I'll be returning to showing you things I've made with other's patterns.

This is the Amy dress which is a nice summer dress with a cotton lining and linen fashion fabric which has pale blue stripes. I had to attend a nautical themed party and instantly thought about a dress made from blue-white striped fabric. And to my luck I found the perfect fabric which had the stripes running lengthwise which is quite rare in the shops in my area. As horizontal stripes make me look shorter and wider than I actually am, finding this fabric was like winning the jackpot on the lottery.

For the bodice I used my own bodice block which I drafted last year. The skirt is a 3/4 circle skirt and has pockets in the side seams. The lining skirt is a half circle skirt. I left the bodice seam allowances raw as I stitched the waist seams of the main layer and lining together and there should be minimal fray. The skirt seams are finished with the serger and both of the hems are rolled. The dress fastens with an invisible zipper in the left side seam.

This dress makes me wish the summers were longer here as it's such a great dress to wear but it's not appropriate for the colder seasons. *sob*
