The idea for my dress has been in my head for quite some time. Ages ago I saw a yellow vintage dress on etsy that had been upcycled with a contrast collar and belt. It was adorable but not my size so I planned to recreate it one day. I bought the fabrics over a year ago (before I was even pregnant) and they sat in my stash waiting to be sewn. When I was given this dare I decided it was time! I used vintage Simplicity 5343 for the bodice and did a simple gathered skirt. I drafted my own peter pan collar and added a simple waist band. I am so in love with how this dress turned out. It is so nice to have something that has been in your head for so long turn out exactly as planned.
So a big thank you to Gillian for the sewing dare. It was a lot of fun! I think when I have knocked over a few of the items on my to sew list I might just have to get another one.
