I'm making View C, the green one in the photo with the longer sleeves. I'm using a chocolate brown gauze embroidered in turquoise and cream. If the dress turns out, it should be quite nice. I've only done four muslins of this dress (more on that in a later post) so my doubts about its success have more to do with the fabric- it doesn't want to cooperate with me!The second dress is New Look 6799:
I'll be making view C, which is the plain black, slim skirted version. I'm using a stretch cotton, which, coincidentally, is also chocolate brown with large flowers in turquoise and cream. I'd also like to make View B, the pink version, but I haven't found a suitable fabric yet.
I am also still working on my latest smocking project, Miss Daisy from AS&E #58:
This is an adorable little sundress that buttons down the front, ties on the shoulders, and of course, has a sweet little sash in back. Oh, and it's smocked with an easy half space wave pattern and embroidred in Lazy Daisy (detached chain) daisies. My version will be hot pink microcheck:(You can see Summertime Pink behind the pink microcheck piece. See, I really did start them at the same time!)
