I absolutely love Fabric Godmother's line of fabrics. When I was asked to choose a fabric I immediately went to the selection that Sew Me Sunshine stock (it was a difficult decision!).
I hadn't tried one of their cotton lawns before, and I fell in love with this vibrant ditsy print. The quality is absolutely amazing, it's soft yet has a lovely handle. It was easy to cut and presses like a dream.
The knife pleats were tricky. I had to go back to the pattern pieces and mark the whole pleat on to get them to work properly, but I don't have much experience with pleats. I always welcome a learning opportunity! I like the elastic detail at the waist, it makes the fit better and it's comfortable at the same time.
I decided to add jumbo ricrac
to the neckline and sleeves to give a kitsch prairie look.
I realise that I've accidentally made a spring dress when we're deep into Autumn here in the UK, but sometimes you can't fight inspiration when it strikes. And I've got a shiny new fun dress ready for when spring eventually arrives!
