Love it Chris. I am getting ready to do some sun dresses for Abby.!. If I could just get caught up. When I get through with something. Then someone else brings in something for me to do.. Love the fabric.. I use to make summer dresses for the girls out of a real thin Cotton called Lawn. I do not see it anymore. It was a lot like Batiste with more body to it and in all kind of prints. Sewed up beautifully
I had beautiful lawn dresses when I was a wee lass. My Nanna used to make me dresses out of Swiss Voile too with little flock pieces on the fabric.
This fabric is very lightweight almost like open weave cotton.
There are so many other patterns available from Kayo Horaguchi. My fabric is called "Carousel and Piano". At $11.00AUD for only half a metre it works out to be very expensive, but so worth it. I bought my pieces of fabric with the green piano, the one shown on the website has a pink piano. I can't put up the website as I'm just answering your post, but if you want to have a look at their fabrics check our KAYO HORAGUCHI Carousel and Piano print fabric. Love Chris
Very pretty. Hugs
Thanks Shirley, I think so too. Love Chris
Very pretty summer dress. I like how you planned the detail of the straps to match, too. Great job Chris!
Thanks Toogie, you are very observant! I actually made them so that the flowers were on the front of the straps and cut them individually so that the back is more plain.
And, if you look really close at the top of the bodice, I've put two little ceramic HEART buttons as an added interest - they have little flowers on them like the fabric. Love Chris
Oh, its the heart buttons I am seeing. I thought the hearts were fabric. Great job and planning, anyway.
What a beautiful dress. Lucky little lady.
Thanks Doreen, she always says that she is so lucky having dresses made by me. It brings back memories of my Nanna making my clothes as a wee lass. Love Chris
Perfect for the summer month. She will look so sweet in that dress. Well done
Thanks Angie, I hope so too. Love Chris
Gosh, that's gorgeous, Chris! I love the fabric! Ophelie is going to look fabulous wearing this.
Thanks Deb, yes, I agree with you. Love Chris
Such a cute dress. She is going to be adorable in it. Love the fabric!
Thanks Debbie, I've been trying to find where I purchased it from but it was such a long time ago. Love Chris
Beautifully done, Chris...I love that fabric!
Hi Kim, thanks for commenting. I fell in love with the fabric from a website in China. I’ll have to go on a hunt to see if I can locate where I bought it from. Love Chris
