Alicia dress

August 31, 2009

I actually made this a while back and DD has been wearing it almost all summer long. No difficulty worth mentioning, really, especially since I substituted the buttons and buttonholes in the back with snap buttons. I actually wanted yellow-painted ones but did not find any. The inverted pleats are beautifully explained. Ottobre is great, really. I used thread of the contrasting color to topstitch. Even though it was not topstiching thread (red thread on yellow fabric and vice versa), it came out great. I like that it can go as a dress or as a tunic. The fabric is a very soft cotton from the Holland fabric market. French seam finish. Curtain please:
