Ribbon stripe dress
Last weekend I reported on a work in progress and this weekend I finally got around to taking pictures of the finished project. Here it is, my ribbon stripe dress complete with two large pockets and buttons down the back. I saw a dress online a while back that had this kind of red ribbon detailing so I decided to be a copycat and do the same thing. The box pleats on the skirt were inspired by a different dress I saw online.
The skirt has a gathered lining to give it some fullness (at first I was unhappy with this part, but after pressing the pleats on top the skirt looked much less balloon like). I came up with the pattern on my own as I went along and I'm rather pleased with how it turned out.
Now I'll just have to wait around for warmer weather so that I can wear it out.
