Emily made this summertime frock from Britex Fabrics’ cotton from our 2nd floor. Her dress fabric is splashed with humongous baby pink and sand daisies, and accented with a delicate pink ribbon belt. Emily did a great job; we particularly like the gently pleated skirt and bodice shaping…and her pink and white spectator heels. Emily said, “I am honored to be on the Britex blog! I actually made this dress on my own without a pattern – I’m a self-taught sewer so I don’t use patterns too often. As for the occasion, I mainly made it just to have a fun 50’s inspired summer dress as I love and find much of my inspiration from the 1950’s. Just an extra tid-bit: there’s an attached pink tulle underskirt under the outer floral skirt :).” We think this cries out for matching pink lemonade and strawberry frosted cupcakes!
