SEE!!! I was so excited! I am not catholic, but the idea of Nuns in a bank cracked me up and I scrambled to get my camera out in time to take pictures. I do apologize for their horrid-ness. Bank lighting is bad.
And here is the polka dot dress I made! I quite love it. Sorry that the pictures aren't awesome, I'll take better ones tomorrow, I just haven't had a chance to do so. I spilled ice cream on it and there was a tree climbing incident that left bark splatter, and our washer is dead until tomorrow. I didn't use a pattern for this, just cut and sewed and readjusted until I liked it. It's not perfect, but it is 96.7 % perfect. I'll write up how I did it and exactly what I would change later. I do want to mention the bias tape. It's vintage that my mom picked up a long time ago and I've always loved it. I was going to go with plain red bias tape, but then I saw this and thought that the patter mixing would be pretty cute. So voila! there you have it. My other favourite thing about it is the back which I will have to show you later since I didn't get any pictures of it. I'm thinking of making a few more and improving the design a little. This dress is a cotton and it is sooooo nice for these horrible hot days we're having. I think I could live in this dress. Though next time I'll remember not to make one in white. I am far to klutzy/adventurous-when-it-comes-to-trees-and-hills-of-dirt for white dresses. Also how awesome is that jump!
