Pauline Alice Aldaia Dress
I made this dress before here and here. This time I used the bodice from view B with sleeves and skirt from View C. This dress pattern is awesome. With the many combinations between the 3 views (I still have yet to make view A), and different fabric choices, you can fill your closet with this one dress pattern. I know I will...especially since I have my size and fit figured out and the pattern is just sitting and ready to go!
My fabric is Telio Venice stretch ITY knit from Fabric.com. When I looked up to see what it was I bought, I noticed there is also this same print in Denim color. I think I will have to buy that one too. To me, this fabric gives the dress a retro look, which I love. The print is textured.
I haven't made view A of this pattern yet because I am totally in love with this wrap style bodice. If I make another one this summer, I have to admit it will probably be this combination of pattern pieces.
No swayback needed for me since there are two darts at the bottom bodice back.
I've been making some great progress on my son's American Ships Quilt! I still have a ways to go, but I am nearly finished with embroidering the ships. I have about 5 to go, as well as some embroidered accent squares. It has been a work in progress for years.
