A sneak peek at my By Hand London Elisalex Dress


I've been busy lately... searching for housing, crossing my fingers that I get the job I was recently interviewed for, and finding a few spare moments to work on some sewing. 

Although I haven't taken any photos with this dress on yet, I thought I would drop by to share this and encourage you all to join the Elisalex Dress Sewalong over on the By Hand London Blog! They are kicking things off today, so head on over and check it out! The pattern was really fun to work with, and I especially love the way that the back scoops down. Unfortunately, my fabric choice was a bit too flimsy for the tulip skirt of the dress, so I changed it up a bit. I'm on the lookout for tulip-worthy fabric now so I can make a second Elisalex Dress following the pattern directly, in all of it's flowery glory!
