The E Dress

IMG_6863
A short and sweet post to bring you The E Dress – the Easter dress, made during my Easter holidays from school. It’s another Avid Seamstress Day Dress, (my second of three) and for this version I treated myself to some beautiful Liberty lawn courtesy of Kat’s Fabrics. I think I paid around £35 for just over 3m. IMG_6847

I followed the pattern just as last time, except I added about 2.5inches to the length. I still included pockets. One mistake I made was not to flip the pattern piece for the sleeves, meaning the snowdrops are actually upside down on them – but I don’t think it’s overly noticeable.
IMG_6860You’ll notice for this post I did something I *very* rarely do – got my legs out! I hardly ever have bare legs, especially in the UK. However, it was a beautifully sunny day, so I took the plunge whilst out for a dog walk. Please excuse the glare on your screens.

  4. There’s no glare here! I don’t have the best legs but get them out regardless! This style looks lovely on you, especially in the Liberty print, perfect for this lovely weather we’re having 😎

  5. I bared my legs for the first time this week, too, but it won’t take long to get a bit of colour on them if we all persist. I find 3/4 length trousers are a good starting point:)

  6. Legs? Oh yes, I think I have some, somewhere. This is my favourite version of the three. Looks like a great pattern – glad you’ve found a TNT.
