Gabriella Cafe (wonderfully adorable place, and worth the drive!). We got to SC early and I could request anything I wanted on my special day, so I made my family take me to Hart's Fabric for a 20 minute, whirlwind shopping spree.
amazing double gauze by Kokka ended up in my basket, originally intended to be another Hayden top. Somehow, I must have requested the wrong amount and when I got home, I realized I had 2.5 yards of the stuff! Change in plans--the fabric was going to be a dress! At 45" wide, it was enough, with not much left over.
armscye of the Adelaide Dress, Colette released an addendum with a revised version of the pattern! Clearly, it had nothing to do with me, but it was nice to see they take the feedback from their users seriously. The fixed both the strap angle and the armscye draft!
Snap Source to ship my navy snaps. Unfortunately, the "capped prong ring" type that I bought don't work with my snap pliers--they are too small for the pearl snap attachment and too bit for the normal ring attachment. So, I improvised and put a scrap if thick fabric in the pearl snap attachment and it worked. I am determined to never resort to the blue pound-with-a-hammer tool again.

Very cute dress, and great colors in your fabric. I hear you about the cardigan. I'm ready for some summer weather, gosh darn it!ReplyDelete
I like this one a lot Nicole!ReplyDelete
another cute version of that pattern, perfect for you.ReplyDelete
Lovely! I agree there is something so satisfying in reaching for something to make with the perfect fabric knowing there will be no fit faffing!ReplyDelete
