Dresses For Missions… Finally!

Yes, it’s been a while. It’s not for lack of materials, either. Other hobbies have taken up my time. However, I purchased some cotton batik when I was working on the chasuble for Advent that didn’t end up getting used.

It’s the pink/purple/blue fabric that I tried as stripes down the front of the chasuble. It was thought to be too feminine, but I knew it would be perfect for Dresses.

Isn’t that pretty?!

I didn’t add any kind of fancy decoration at the top of the dress because I felt the material was already busy enough.

Dress #37 Hem Detail

For the hem ruffle I used a solid pink that had a bit of a pattern in it with a bit of sheen. You can’t tell, but the lace I used at the bottom is a pale blue. Then I used a solid grosgrain ribbon with sparkly rick-rack.

Oooo… sparkly!

One thing I noticed when working on this dress is that I need to mix things up a bit. I’ve been sewing this style for a while now and I’m getting bored. Also, due to the way that I add the ruffle and trim it creates a lot of extra sewing. I need to simplify things, so I think that’s what I’m going to work on when I start on the next one.
