The Mori Dress take 2.

Here's another version of the E & E Patterns Mori Dress. 

This is a size 7 for Miss L. I used cotton twill again and used only a single layer on the flounce so it wouldn't be too stiff. I'm thinking I'll trim the flounces with lace for the next one I make.

I can't wait to make a few more of these, maybe for Easter? Probably solids and florals because those are so pretty together.

Miss L was happy to have these pictures be over because it is COLD outside. Oh the woes of being a blogger or photographer's child. :)

A break between storms.

We were stuck inside today because of the nasty weather. So I finished up testing a pattern for Elegance and Elephants

This is the Mori Dress Pattern and it is adorable! The pattern releases this Monday and it has been so fun seeing all the versions that the other testers have created.

This is a size 5 and fits miss B perfectly. I used a nice sturdy twill which drapes nicely. The bodice is lined and showcases princess seams so you could go to town with some fun pops of color by using piping. Maybe I'll try that on the next one I make.

Even though the weather kept us indoors for most of the day we were able to run outside to sneak a few pictures before the rain started up again and we caught the tail end of a rainbow! So pretty.

Hope you're having a wonderful week.
