We are attending the wedding of a distant cousin today. The girls, of course, need new dresses ;)
Hanan's dress is actually a v-neck top pattern (view C) from Portabellopixie Gracie by Sandi Henderson.
I omit the ribbon ties for the dress. And my biggest accomplishment here is the centred zipper, yeay! I wanted this dress to work so much I took the necessary, not for lazy girl action i.e hand basting!
I basted the seam allowance first, then the zipper. There is a reason why all sewing guide books recommend this, the result is so neat and professional, saves me from the heartache of a botched sewing project.
I used vintage inspired roses print Japanese cotton for the dresses. The dusky pink and green stripes trim fabric on Hanan's dress is Kaffe Fasset's shot cotton.
