Anthropologie knockoff taking shape

Things I have (re)learnt so far:

Pattern drafters are highly skilled and I’m not one of those people. *

iPhone photos on a rainy late winter afternoon are not good quality.

He who Cooks thinks navy and white is lovely (“red and white is a bit juvenile”).

Blogging about projects before they have started gives you one option only. Finish it!

* Lots of other sewing bloggers are though: Have you seen StephC’s Cake?

  1. Oh how funny! My husband loves red and white stripes, but not so much on navy and white… “They look like something an old lady would wear.” heheeh.

    This is looking really cool, *I* like red and white stripes… Keep thinking I want to do something like this myself.

    Thanks for the linky love!

  2. Looking good! I like the red & white, although I like navy & white, too. And yes, I agree with you: patternmakers are *exceptionally* skilled people!

  3. Definitely finish it. If I listened to everything my husband said about style I would make nothing, wear nothing and have no self confidence!

    1. I’m very lucky, because He who Cooks is very supportive in every way. His tastes do, however, tend towards the classic and this comment about red and white is a perfect example of that.

  4. He who cooks knows just how hot you are going to look in this dress. He just wants to tone it down a few notches 😉

  5. You brought a smile to my face with this wonderful post! Red and white is a good choice, bolder and brighter than blue and white, please … go ahead!

  6. This is the second or third time I’ve looked at this dress and I really just love it. I am surprised as I thought you may have entered it into the Tessuti competition. I think this is fabulous!

    1. Thank you. That’s a lovely complement. I hadn’t even considered entering this into Tessuti’s competition. There are some truly lovely garments entered!
