I have been looking forward to making this dress ever since I picked up the fabric and pattern at Joann's last month and totally intended to finish it before Valentine's. But it didn't work out that way. It was finished on Monday but we didn't get any photos taken until today.
I love love love the peachy pink color of the fabric! It's a mesh jersey that has a sporty feel to it which makes it wearable as an everyday dress and not just a special occasion dress. Oh and it was $1.75/yard!!
The pattern is Simplicity 2305 by Cynthia Rowley. Really cute shape but really baggy on top. Like two sizes too big. (See first photo) It probably would have fit well when I was nursing but for now I'll just have to invest in a cute red undershirt.
My fav part is the little red bows on the sleeves. Red just looks so good with this color. But other than the red belt and heels (which aren't very practical) I don't really have any ideas on how to accessorize it. Any ideas?
Here's the back. Oh by the way I added the thick band at the bottom to mimic the sleeve band. The pattern was just straight and a little too plain.
Nude satin lining inside the skirt. The top has the same mesh lining.
