And here it is!
My pride and joy, my Hawthorne Dress!
It was just as fabouless as I dreamt it would be!
This dress has it all; a feminine collar, buttons, and a big, swearly skirt.
(Yes, I must admit, somewhere inside this women in her late 20`s there`s a princess...)
And whit now further delay;
The dress is competing whit this beautyfull landscape, for shure!
And now for some details:
My Hawthorne was made by a blue and white seersucker gingham fabric.
It was my first time ever whit this sort of fabric, and I must say I love it! It is defenitely not the last time!
All seems where sewn with french seems, for a cleaner look.
The hem was sewn up whit a jeans-colored bias tape.
The buttons really makes this dress. They are sort of blue-greyish.
And I even made pockets, because pockets are grrreaaat!
My Hawthorn has allready been used alot, and It even went with us on our holiday.
Now I am allready planning on making a new version. Maybe I`ll try the peplumblouse?
I did sign up for the Hawthorn sewalong, but when the fabric and patter arriwed,
I got so eager that I just had to start. So I was actually finished long before the sewalong ended.
Thanks to the great tutorial that came whit the pattern, that was no problem!
By the way, you can see all the versions on this Flick Group.
And there is even a voting going on for some of the members of the sewalong that
was lucky enough to get theire dress in the contest, so hop on over and vote!
