I got my hands on some Heather Ross Far, Far Away Double Gauze Cotton in a unicorn print thanks to my friend Priscilla. I had no idea how much I’d love this stuff! Of course I know I love the double gauze, now that I know the tricks to sewing with it, but these Far, Far Away prints are simply adorable in a more whimsical than “cutesy” way.
I further hacked the pattern I traced and deconstructed from a shirt I purchased last year and made the top into a dress. I shared my initial tracings with icewerks, and she made a gorgeous interpretation and wrote a kind post about it. (In general, I think you should probably read her blog if you are even remotely interested Japanese Crafting, beautiful photography, or life in Vermont. I visit every day.)
Ella wouldn’t wear it without a belt, so I had to make her one. She was completely right, it needs a belt. Even J loves it on her, which is impressive, because he usually doesn’t express an opinion either way. I’m going to make some changes to the pockets and then offer it up in my shops in a variety of different fabrics.
