Have you guys heard about the Vintage May series that Skirt As Top and Craftiness is Not Optional are putting on? I’m pretty excited that I was asked to join in, Kristin and Jess are two awesome friends of mine and they’re always coming up with great things! So my guest post is coming up later this month, but I had to try a couple ideas first.
This dress for Emily being one of them. It’s really similar to Jess’ dress yesterday in it’s construction. So be sure to check out her tutorial here if you want to make something similar.
I had this Sandi Henderson print at the bottom of my fabric stack forever. I’m not that fond of it, even though I think it’s really pretty. So I figured cutting into it without much of a plan wouldn’t be hurt so bad. Luckily it went pretty smoothly, I ended up completely lining the top (which is all about comfort as far as I’m concerned). No itchy or scratchy seams.
I also did a hem facing, totally love it. I like being able to add in a secondary fabric for an extra special touch. I also used some vintage buttons that I have had forever, I think they’re the perfect match!
That’s all for now! I’m excited about my guest post later on this month!
ps, I’m off to Amanda Jean’s book signing tonight in Madison, wohoo!
