The “Super Emily” Dress
On Trend you say? Um I’m not really all that trendy as it turns out so I did a google search and was told by Glamour magazine that mixing prints is a trend to keep for summer 2012 but letting one print be the star of an otherwise plain outfit was a trend to delete. That and oh so many other things that I like. Oh well. I ended up making a knit dress for Emily using 3 prints one of which is super girl. It was a fun little dress to make mostly because I didn’t really use a pattern. I did use the bodice piece for a knit sundress but traced between sizes, added length, and completely changed the skirt. Sometimes is so much fun to just go to my room and be creative.
Speaking of being creative. I’m still not much of a photo editor so I asked my husband if he could jazz these up a bit. The following is what he came up with.
Fabric:1/2 yard super girl knit, 1/2 stripe knit, and a little bit of back with white polk a dot knit
Pattern: I used the bodice of an Otto knit dress
Year: 6/2010 issue I think at the moment its just a loose piece floating around the sewing room
Notions: double needle for binding and hemming
Time: about an hour
First Worn: for pictures
Wear Again: I hope so. Not for fighting dragons though.
