Far Far Away again.....

This is the second installment of sewing with Heather Ross double gauze from the Far Far Away line. I used a peasant dress pattern from one of my Japanese pattern books and altered it a bit. I gave the dress a drop waist, full skirt and a ruffle neckline. Soren loves it! I think it's too long and would like to bring the hemline up around her knee but she won't have it. And this is a girl who knows what she likes. So I won't risk her not wearing the dress just to make it suit my desires :) The benefit of all this length is that she will be able to wear it for like 4 years! It's going to fit way longer than her willingness to wear the thing.

The bottom is serged but I have yet to turn a hem . Soren wore it all day anyway and you couldn't tell it wasn't finished. I was a bit worried that this print might be too sheer in white. It's not. In fact, I wouldn't dream of lining this print even if it was a garment for me. This is the second dress that I have made with this ruffle neckline and I love it. I think I will be making more.

  3. Good thing I'm not making her tunic in Far Far Away! I considered it but the dress is darling in it. I'm glad to hear it's not too sheer, I have plans in mind for my own garment out of some of it.

  4. That came out great. I love the neckline and the fabric too of course!
