When visiting my daughter last year, I had bought some lovely Liberty Tana Lawn.
After some hesitation, the lovely Wenona dress versions by Megan, Yoshimi and Claudia inspired me to make one, too.
I printed a bunch of the technical drawing to find the best arrangement of the two fabrics for the details.
I chose one size smaller than according to my measurements because every sewist had outlined a big outcome.
When cutting out, I was quite careful to be accurate with the print.
I finished all seams with french seams.
I snipped the seam allowance to turn it under two times to hem the sleeve slits.
When I finished my dress in july, weather was too hot to wear it. Furthermore, I realised that the print bothered me a bit.
In the first week of Oktober, we had our great sewing bee "AnNäherung Süd" at Würzburg with about fourty lovely women sewing and chattering together. I was very pleased sharing a room with Julia Sewionista, IsaLaBella and Almut of La Couseuse, we had such a great time!
I asked for help how to put an outfit with the dress. This was the only time I wore it. I suppose that I will have to shorten it. It looks too much like an apron dress. What do you think? I appreciate honest opinions!
