Summertime dressing

Poppy-dress I finally buckled down and finished the last few bits of this sundress.  I used some poppy printed cotton and New Look #6774 which has you pick the elements of the dress you want in a frankensteiny way.  I used D, J, K and L (I think).  Note: I would not recommend the curved straps for beginner sewers, as they're a bit awkward to manage.

Of course I didn't sew it up the way they wanted and to confuse matters further I used an invisible zipper which has different installation needs.  I ended up having to sew the front bodice facing in by hand, which as you know, means the dress won that particular battle.

I think it just needs a stitch at the boob crossover so I don't flash the masses, not that there's anything wrong with that…Summer sewing is kinda like potato chips, can't stop with one.

  1. Another cute dress! Our summer is staying unusually cool so there’s not much opportunity for really summery clothes.

  2. Love the gathers. And yes, those curved straps are a pain to sew but the fit is so much better. Well worth it.
    What’s the fabric? Pretty.
