I’m very excited about the dresses I’ll be making in the new year. It would be more practical to do warmer stuff but for right now I just want to make pretty dresses!
Here are some projects I’m interested in. Feel free to give me suggestions etc.
The blackberry dress is the one I most want to do. I LOVE the fabric! I’ve been thinking about lining it with orange for a surprise kick.
I love nautical dresses and would like to play on the theme. I adore the sweet little lobster print. I’d like the front panel and skirt to be in the print and the side panels in plain navy. I’m thinking the top collar and belt bit would be red with gold buttons. I think the overall look would be stunning.
I love this classic dress. It’s modest but sweet, so I think it can handle a bold print. I haven’t thought through how to use the print. I think I would just use it for the skirt, but I’m not sure what other fabric I could use for the top to match with it.
I know I will use this basic dress pattern for several more dresses.
This dress is definitely more ambitious. I have wanted to use this print before because I think it’s so sweet (pun intended). I love beautiful candy but actually like looking at them more than eating them. So this print is perfect!
I plan on making the top, skirt, and bow in the print but the middle section and possibly the collar in a complementary color. I would buy the print first then see what colors I think would go well with it.
I’d like to try an all over bold, fresh print in a bright color. I love the cut of this dress, it’s somewhat princess without being too obvious and the bodice line is nice. I think the combination of print and dress would be very sweet, if I can pull it off!
I adore adore ADORE this dress. This is the dress I want to wear on the first day of summer. It is so beautiful! I love the original print of the dress but I haven’t been able to track it down so I’ve been looking at other floral prints. I’m not sold on any of these but I do think they are really nice.
