Suddenly I decided I need a new sun dress. I just love gingham its such a classic print. I am really glad its currently fashionable again.
I am currently moving and extremely busy- but today I got bit by the sewing bug. Most of my sewing stuff is in storage, but a few things are still here in my house. Including a very nice piece of navy and white gingham seersucker. It was 4 yards worth and plenty to make a dress. I used the same skirt pattern as my little white dress . For the bodice I used this diagram (scroll down page) and my custom bodice sloper. (one of the best things I have made, if you don’t have sloper based on your bodies measurements I highly advise you to make one. To find out more about how to do it look here)
I cut it out and sewed it all in one day today. It is almost finished, just needs the bodice lining sewn in and a hem. Look for a finished garment later this week.
