Weekend sewing: dresses
We've lucked out with some wonderful summer-like weather the past week. So I took that as a perfect excuse for me to sew a few short sleeved dresses.
This was from the Leila & Ben sweet dress pattern and gingham/seersucker-y fabric from JoAnn's.
I love the finished product, but the process was brutal. I couldn't figure out the casings and how to connect the arms to the body for the life of me. I finally just ditched the directions and did what made sense to me. And it worked. I must've over-complicated things or been under-caffeinated, as a quick google search will come up with dozens of rave reviews.
This was once again the LBB Sienna dress pattern, made with an old shirt of my own. Sister got to wear it for St. Patty's Day since 80 degrees was too warm for the rainbow top.
