new dress



new dress for spring - this one took quite a bit of working out, and still needs a little tweaking in the back to make the sewing a little smoother. I've been trying to work out my designs to include more natural, undyed cloth, for a number of reasons - one is that I found a gorgeous organic linen that I just love, and two is that all the dying I used to do just isn't possible for me anymore, as we were in a small car accident that injured my back. I love the drape of the linen in the skirt, it involved several different pleats as well as gathers - the structure it gives the skirt is lovely.
oh - it's reversible - this is the same dress, turned inside out.

This is cute. A matching hat would be a great bonus. I wish I had a little girl to buy this for!
