My husband took these pictures about 4:00 pm, during the three minutes we were both home at the same time. It was very bright and sunny!
I used a blue and lavendar seersucker from Harts Fabric, and instead of buttons, I used lavendar snaps! This was not my unique idea; I shamelessly used mystitchnbitch's version as inspiration. At the last minute, I almost decided to scrap the snap idea and go with buttons. I had the snaps, so I tested them on a swatch to help me make my decision, and I instantly loved them. So snaps it was.
A lot of people on pattern review had trouble with the collar and the instructions. I goofed one side of it, but figured it out by the time I got to the other side, so I only had to rip one side one time. It was quite a bit fiddly, but it wasn't super complicated. I think it came out really well, and I'm pretty excited that I made a collar! I want to hang a sign around my neck that says, "I made this collar!"
This is a great dress for summer. It's comfortable and very wearable, but also looks a bit dressy and pulled together. Now I need some accessory help. I think it needs a bigger necklace maybe?
