I thought I would make up another Réglisse since I had all the pattern pieces out and it was a fairly quick make. This one is made with a quilting cotton with a sort of sunset print. Things went smoothly once I realized that it was impossible to match the pattern on the diagonal, so instead I cut the bodice out along the grainline and that worked well. I am amazed though at how differently the two fabrics behave, this bodice feels like it sits quite a bit higher than my red dress.
Here’s some photos, I wore this on day 8 of Me-Made-May. A photo from day 7 is here.
I made this Cambie dress last summer. Not only is Me-Made-May encouraging to wear more of my handmade items, it’s encouraging me to photograph them as well. I bought this fabric while I was on the island of Kauai in Hawaii at about this time last year. I love fabric shopping on vacations, I’m always googling fabric shops wherever I’m going!
Here’s some photos, I wore this on Day 6 of Me-Made- May ’13.
This is what I wore on Day 5, my belladone dress.
I love this pattern, but I think I need to try it in a crisper fabric with a tiny bit more weight to it. It’s the Réglisse dress pattern from Deer & Doe in Paris.
This is Day 4 of Me Made May ’13, a photo from Day 3 is here if you’re interested.
