Do we need an excuse to make a new swishy frock??
This new frock was made with Simplicity 2591. An awesome, swishy, pocketty dress that many peeps have contacted me in the past to buy from me. Unfortunately, I think this pattern is quite unique and worthy of keeping, so keep it I have!
I love the fit, which is pretty much straight from the envelop, the bias side panels and the super deep pockets. Why haven’t I made more of these??
The fabric is a quilting cotton, one of Dolly’s favourite fabric choices. This one is by Dear Stellar, called Garden Party and it has a lovely lakeside image with Autumn coloured leaves, gold fish, birds and cranes. Clearly it pairs perfectly with my red wedges and belt!
Congratulations Dolly and Nick! I’m heading over to the Flickr group to peep at what everyone else has been making, you should too!
