"Mais oui, bien sûr."
|an impressionist painting...?|
Made from old linen tablecloths given to me by a friend. This dress has three of them. The pink top with border is one, the front floral panel is another, and the skirt portion with flowers and aqua border is the third. And a very simply pattern to sew from Marcy Tilton.
|Check out those biiiigggg pockets!|
Can't you just see me going to Market to pick up a baguette, les fleurs, a cafe s'il vous plait, etc.?
I liked this so much (to make and to wear),
I'm going to make another straight away.
The tablecloths were well loved. Many had tiny holes and spots. I had to use nearly the whole cloth for the dress (no selectively placing pattern pieces). So I mended or embroidered the areas that needed attention.
|and sometimes more covertly.|
