|Mary's striped dress|
I didn't want to overdo the stripes, and I probably wouldn't wear a longer skirt, so I made some modifications to my own version. I used the Sense and Sensibility 1909 Edwardian Dress pattern as my starting point. It was easy to do follow but was definitely 'rustic' in the design.
|My striped dress! Though it's hard to see the stripes from a distance.|
Some modifications that I made included:
- Shortening the skirt length
- Shortening the sleeves (about 6" from the shortest fitted length pattern)
- Added the solid cuff to the sleeves
- Added a green sash to the middle instead of cutting the dress to add the middle waistband
I was worried that I would feel/look like a candy striper but I think the stripes are small enough and more subtle than the bold red and white uniform. Overall, I think it's a pretty fun spring dress and a nice finale for my Spring Palette.
