Hi everyone! Omg it’s February. Maybe it will be Christmas before we know it?
Last year I decided that I needed (as much as someone who has 11 wrap dresses in her wardrobe can) a green wrap dress.
I bought some beautiful cotton from Crafty Mamas (Lisa knows where to get the good stuff), but it wasn’t quite the right green. So I dyed it!
I love dying fabric in the washing machine, it feels like alchemy. I use this one from Spotlight. I used the second hottest setting on my washing machine because I was worried about destroying the elastane in the fabric.
This was destined to be an Appleton, but I decided to make it Burda wrap dress number 2.
The neckline is bound with the Appleton neckband pieces, altered for length. I will do this next time, but I am going to make them half as wide.
Without further ado, photos!
I wore the dress first to the Brisbane Spoolettes trip to see Phantom Thread. Gorgeous movie, bizarre storyline. Why must every creative genius be an absolute arsehole?
And today I took photos in our usual spot on the way to coffee.
The dress uses around 2.5m. I didn’t make anyone fit alterations this time.
2018 TOTAL FABRIC USED = 14.0m
