I don't have just one favorite color (at least not one long term favorite) but I must say, the color orange makes me ridiculously happy.
I liked the way this dress turned out so well that I did the same thing with the bodice on this one. The skirt though, is just a plain gathered skirt. It looks much longer in the picture than it actually is. It's just a bit below mid-calf.
And the faces? Here are the faces. I like that only a few random flowers have faces.
Here's the back of the dress. I am addicted to these scoop back dresses.
Before I made the dress I made this bolero or "shrug" as the kids are calling them these days. It's cotton voile with embroidered flowers and I sewed lace trim around the edges, just about an inch in from the edge.
I'm not 100% thrilled with it but it's okay and it might occasionally be useful. Hmmmm... I wonder if it meets the Congressional dress code.
One more thing - the shoes are Clark's Cloudsteppers and they're amazing.
