I really wanted to love this as a maxi dress because I am in LOVE with this fabric. I especially wanted to love it because Joel Dewberry was lovely to work with as I had a couple problems with the pattern that he addressed quickly and more than sufficiently. (If you’ve bought the pattern, be sure to read pattern corrections HERE.)
Maybe it’s because I used the cotton instead of the voile, which although is more pricey, looking back I wish I would have known it came in voile and purchased that instead so it would look better. Never again will I make myself clothing with quilting fabric (unfortunately I won’t make that promise for Little Miss B’s clothing I sew). I know that quilting cotton isn’t for apparel, but yet I still use it! I’m sure it added to the fullness. It just wasn’t looking good to me. And while I wore it all I could think of was the song, “Pioneer children sang as they walked, and walked, and walked…”
Ahhh, homemade bias tape is the best. Isn’t it so pretty? So love the Citrine Line! I think I’m going to order some in voile and make a top or something with it.
I also wanted to let you know that Kirsten Duke of Kirsten Duke Photography is having a fun event on her blog during the month of September.
Check out the terrific line-up of bloggers! I’m excited to be involved because it’s going to make me do a little home décor rather than sewing…which is good to take a break from every now and then and do something else! Be sure to read more about her fun challenge and why she feels so passionately about it!
Hope you are having a happy day!
