Adrianna started a dress craze around here. We’ve only done 127 posts on it already. It started when she tried this tutorial. And then she came to my house and copied the pattern she had made for Z for me. We talked about fabric and picked two from my stash. And while I was distracted by something else, she decided that I needed to see how easy it was, so in less than an hour she had made the green version. And then I did this one. And then she did these. And then I was thinking about making a Valentine’s Day dress for K. While simultaneously A was making a dress for Z with the same pattern. And amidst all of this we are in love with Indietutes for providing this simple magic of a pattern that’s great for beginners and offers so many possibilities for those that want to spice it up. Thus the mutual admiration society, since she just thanked A for her input/appreciation. No, thank you. No really, thank yoooou.
This version is made with a wide-wale chocolate corduroy and a pale pink iridescent taffeta. The taffeta was a bit sheer and light, especially when paired with the medium-weight corduroy, so I made a double layered sleeve and hem and added pleating on each of the top layers. A reverse appliqued heart on each pocket. I wish I had seen this tutorial before I did that. But there’s always another outfit on the to-do list.
