I finished this dress the last day of June, but haven’t been able to get pictures before, blame it on an urgent desire to go to the beach.
This dress is the Bleuet from Deer and Doe, and I love it. I am so so so happy with it! Finally a shirt-dress that actually suits me. I have tried several before in different stores, but something was always off, but not with this one!
The bow in the back is really cute.
I got the fabric on our trip to La Coruña last month, and I am in love with it. I had been looking for a small flower print for a very long time, and finally I came across this beauty. I knew immediately that it was meant for my Bleuet.
I found a great tutorial on photoshopping your fabric to your pattern by Mel from The Curious Kiwi, and just for the fun of it, I tried it out. It’s such great fun. You can find the tutorial for Photoshop here and the tutorial for Gimp here.
|See, I knew beforehand this dress was going to be great!|
I had the buttons covered in my local haberdashery store, I didn’t feel like messing around with those DIY-kits for 15 buttons, and they were only 70 cents each, so I was glad to outsource that task…
I’ll definitely make this again, but I’ll overcome my vanity and cut a size larger, this one is rather tight…
Nothing more to say about this dress, just enjoy the pictures.
The sun is finally here, so off to the beach again it is! And don’t forget: wear sunscreen!
