Vanessa really nailed it with the outfit she made! With the ultra soft stripey t-shirt and bright aqua jumper-dress, she managed to strike the perfect balance of feminine, playful and comfortable. Lauren absolutely loves it.
In Vanessa’s words: My inspiration pin was a rust colored dress (it had ruffles on the bottom back) with a stripe-y tee underneath. I used Hey June’s Narita dress pattern which had a similar look to the “pinned” dress and Rae’s Skinny Tee pattern :) I added some decorative stitching to the dress bodice to break up the solid color a bit. I was hoping to make something that was comfy and wearable in a pretty shade of blue! Fabrics: Michael Miller Cotton Couture Broadcloth Turquoise for the dress and stretch rayon jersey knit from Fabric.com + ribbing for the top.
I think I will be buying that pattern.
