her new favorite

c loves button-down dresses. (she loves to do *all* the buttons.) and she loves purple.

what more could a girl ask for?

yep. twirly skirts.

both patterns are from this book (awesome book). the dress is pattern A, type 3. i love the dress, you may be seeing more of these. the pattern is cut perfectly, though i may lengthen the sleeves ever so slightly. the skirt is pattern C, which i enjoyed sewing with the lovely heather at modern domestic’s friday night sewcial last week. it’s made from essex linen, which may be my favorite new fabric. the stuff has a beautiful hand and drape, and it just shimmers. the whole outfit is of course inspired by the beauiful aesthetic of the japanese pattern books (to which i am addicted), as well as by my favorite new blog.

happy weekend!

  1. Wow! You made so much progress. It’s so cute. I did not yet finish my blouse as I expected to. Too much working this week and chaos of basement remodeling : > )

  2. Omigosh Robin, I loooooove this outfit on C! Amazing! Em is the same way – she loves buttons. The skirt underneath is great too. And wow, Sanae’s blog is amazing! Already pinned a couple things and now following. Lovely!

  3. I can see why this is her favorite:) Isn’t it nice when they actually like the clothes we make?! Well done – it’s gorgeous. And I too am a big fan of Sanae’s blog – so much talent and such a great design eye.
