I thought this ankara print would be perfect for this challenge. I thrifted this fabric sometime ago and she’s been sitting in my stash just busting to be made into something special. I’m not too sure I’ve made a ‘special’ kind of dress, it’s rather basic really, a throw-over-your-head and get out the door kind of dress and I’m okay with that too.
I’m back on the bush catwalk strutting this little pink number for my ladies. The border you see along the neckline and the arms were removed from the fabrics edge and re-sewn to frame the print on the dress, the bottom of the dress was the end of the fabric which I gathered and serged to the dress at what I consider a lovely flattering length. I placed elastic just above my waist which of course gives the dress some definition. I know you know how this was put together so feel free to skip the text.
Two carriers on either side of my waist were installed to carry the beaded belt. The beads are that heavy though it drags the belt down away from the elastic so maybe another carrier in the centre may sort this out. Without the beads the dress looks a tad ordinary. She’s a comfortable dress, something I can throw on without too much fuss. This is my no fuss dress we all have them.
…..and that’s all I have to say about this one. I can’t wait to see everyone’s pink ensembles. Here’s last years Pink challenge. Happy Sewing! I’m off to get my hair cut, it’s getting out of hand the long side bits got caught in my mouth the other day and I almost choked like a cat on a furball Arrr.
On naming this one, I’ve been listening to a lot of those swedish girls- First Aid Kit and love the song Emmylou. I’ll name this one The Emmylou for this week. See you all next week.
