Call it Summer madness – #pineapples. Here’s the top/skirt pineapple combo I made last year.
Then Darn Cheap Fabrics put up pics of their pineapple print fabrics on IG. All I’m saying is their phone purchasing service is quick, just like their mailing service.
Here’s a simple romper – made in one day. McCalls 6362.
You know how they say ‘what you do on the first day of the year, you’ll do all year?” Well I cut and made this dress on NY Day – Vogue 8949.
|I’m aiming to blend into the garden.|
I originally used this dress pattern for my December Minerva Make and it’s such a great fit and my current fitted go-to dress for Summer – ‘now with sleeves’. Yes. It’s fully lined.
The day I wore it is was great to wear but I felt a bit meh, so I added the zipper to the front right seam for a ‘bit of interest’ and raised the hem to just above the knees.
I keep the zip closed for work.
Now I’m thinking of applying a longer zipper in the front skirt seam for an evening version.
Uhm … I have enough of this print left to make another dress but this fabric is fairly firm (linen) so I’ll have to pattern dive and find something with interest.
