I've sewn up this year's Liberty dress (I've actually made a few so far, from fabric I squirreled from the Liberty store...maybe more on those in another post?) So technically, this is one of this year's Liberty dresses.
The print is called Poppy & Honesty (I think) which is so pretty in all colorways but I was especially liking this nice demure blue & gray colorway. The pattern is my devising, a kind of pared-down version of this beautiful No.6 dress, the Alice dress, with nice long ties that wrap around the back & tie in the front.
It's light as a feather, really comfy and easy to wear (all extremely important as it seems to be getting toastier & toastier in famously gray, chilly Portland.)
And of course, (most importantly) it has nice big pockets!
I found this excellent little tutorial/technique for creating perfectly matched patch pockets and I've been going crazy putting pockets on everything. I've always had a hard time not only matching the pockets, but also pressing the rounded edges under so they lay nicely to stitch them down. But now I've got this little trick!
Pockets. Pockets for everything!
