Before I head out on my work trip, I just wanted to show off my newest creation. I was ga-ga over this awesome boat dress from British brand Lowie but it is way out of my price range. Then I thought, "I could make that!" Or at least, a version of it.
Here is the original awesome dress that I cannot have.
And here I am in my version. This was not the finished product (you mat notice the pins in the collar, and my stocking feet), but I didn't want to miss the light. Look how great the fit of the dress is! I finally got it right with the size 6.
I used the Peony pattern again, but I added a Peter Pan collar. This is my favorite dress so far! Here is the finished product on my dress form. Pretty cute right? I can't wait to wear it out!
I'd really like to do a series of boat themed garments in the future. It is suck an adorable free design. I will be keeping my eye out for boat themed fabric from now on, and make as many variations as I can.
