As well as all the posh frocks for special occasions, I make every day frocks for those that want to use different fabrics or cannot find what they want in the shops. Here's a selection of recent adventures with cotton frocks!
|Cindy wanted some sun dresses made from
cheerful patchworks prints from her stash, so I set too with a pattern
and some measurements to see what would happen! The results are
quite good fun, and it makes a change not to have the difficulties of glamorous
fabrics and complex styles... It was fun working out how
best to use the fabrics.
There's a blue one still to add to the collection. I varied them a bit, adding different sleeves and pockets, and altering the waistline from high to natural. This pattern also looks good with a dropped waistline.
The blue fabrics were not 100% cotton, and not as sturdy as the pure cottons. I did something silly with the pockets, but you'll have to wait and see...
|These were all the fabrics we had to mix and match. The only one that didn't get into the mix in the end was the purple flowery one, as there was enough of the purple roses to make a whole frock!|
