Unfinished project # 5: A vintage Sunday picnic (pillow case) dress for EmilyMarch 09, 2015
Today I am sharing Emily's pillow case dress. The floral component of the dress is made from a vintage pillow case.
This is another of my unfinished projects from 2014 - sewn, worn, photographed and now blogged! The pattern is my Sunday picnic dress with a rounded collar.
The bodice and pocket linings are a soft blue chambray I bought at Spotlight.
Although the weather is getting cooler here now, Emily wore this all day on Saturday while we explored the rugged beach near our house wearing tights and a cardi.
My now updated 'to finish' list are:
- Emily's quilt
- The second version of my new design for Issie
- A knit dress version of my Little Betty pattern with cool pockets for Juliette
- A coral stretch dress for Issie
It really feels good to get some of these projects finished. They were kind of hanging over my sewing head and when they are all done I will feel like I have not wasted time or fabric and the kids and I can enjoy them. I still have two lovely dresses I made last year that I have not blogged. One is a Nani iro dress (to pretty to wear - I need to be weary of that!) and the other is a lovely cotton and steel dress that I designed that Isabella has worn heaps. I might photograph them together this week and share them too:)
