I’m pretty excited about the progress of my dress and wanted to give you a quick update on how it was coming along! Project #2 is looking good. I wanted to use a fun print so I decided to go with another Kokka Fabric which is a cotton/linen blend. Everything has been cut out and is ready for me to start adding darts and some of the other details. As always I washed and pressed my fabric. Hopefully, there is no additional shrinkage. Here are a couple of pictures of my progress thus far. I’m hoping to have this wrapped up later this evening so I can get to work on my blouse. The pattern I’m using for the dress btw is Simplicity 1609. Remember, I have a thing for retro fashion right and just love the dare I say it, “simplicity” of the dress. Nice simple lines which makes it easy to go with striking bold prints.
Off to get back to it! Oh yeah, Happy Friday!!
