I love this pattern! This DRD is made with Liberty tana lawn called Mitsi. I’ve been sitting on this fabric for a while, just waiting for the right dress style to make with it and I’m certain this is it.
As this dress is grey, I can wear almost any colour shoe and belt. This yellow combination is a little matchy-matchy, but I think it’s cute.
I made just a couple more minor modifications from my first Darling Ranges dress. I slimmed the sleeves down a little and raised the waist seam about 1/4 inch.
I’m very happy with this dress and plan to wear it during winter with a slip, tights and a cardi. I’m already planning my third version of this dress. How many versions of the same pattern is reasonable?

On photos. I apologise for the crappy indoor pics. Not only is my point and shoot camera dying, but I am struggling to find photo locations in my yard now that the shade sail is down. My backyard is very sunny in the middle of the day, during nap time, which is when I get the chance to take my pics without the kids nagging me for something or trying to get in the shot. Every time I take photos in full sun they end up glowing. I only managed to snap a few bad photos in my front yard before being busted by some neighbours and hiding. 🙂 Hopefully once I get my birthday present, a DSLR, and learn how to use it, the photos will improve…. hopefully… *fingers crossed*
