Mix Matched

Friday, October 1, 2010

I interrupt the previous Texas trip posts to bring you some sewing. These dresses were for a custom order for a friend of mine. I had so much fun pulling these together. A little mix, but not too much match. The recipient paid the highest compliment by saying they looked like something from Cath Kidston.

The fabrics are mostly Tanya Whelan's Darla with a bit of Barbara Jones Bubblegum Basics. The pattern is Leila and Ben's Sweet Dress with modifications from this fantastic tutorial by TaDa! Creations. I love the bow detail.

Speaking of Cath Kidston, she has a new US website. I heart this sewing box.
