This dress I finished yesterday, it sat in the too hard pile for a while and it has gone through some transformations. I'm a bad blogger though, because I didn't take any during pictures. It was just too traumatic, trust me, I looked like a ham. It has now been made with a combination of 2 patterns, both altered slightly. Style 4337, 1985 and Simplicity 9744, 1990.
I started this dress before I made my pineapple dress. I was fixated on having an open back fruit dress, obviously! The lime fabric initially was made with Style 4337, view 1, but was very unflattering. I fortunately had enough fabric left to make a new bodice, from Simplicity 9744, view 2. I have made this dress before, Frock, No. 2 and Frock No. 9. Once again I made it with a lower back, and this time I got a picture of it. I love the deep pockets, Ginger and went to the shops today, and I didn't need a bag at all, not even when I bought some new hair product and a comb, straight in the pockets. The side of the pockets are in with the front panel of the skirt seam, which I like. The skirt has only 3 panels, ooh different and unusual!
Ginger's dress, another fruity number, is an op shop find, handed down from her big sister Stella, it has been homemade by another Mummy somewhere, and much loved before it came into our home. Are we not deliciously cute, with our matching fruitiness and head angles?
Last thing, I love how Stella left her dolls yesterday and had to take a photo before cyclone Ginger destroyed it.
