Liberty Summer Dress

Dawn tells us about her beautiful Liberty dress.  “I know I say this about most Liberty fabrics – but Katie & Millie really IS my favourite, so when I saw Bella’s Silhouette in the new Spring/Summer collection I really did have to attempt to make something!”

“The background is Katie & Millie in a lovely crisp summer palette (blue, yellow, green, orange and pink!) with the silhouette of white flowers – just perfect for a summer dress. I bought the McCall’s pattern M7948 a few months ago and thought I’d have a go as it was billed as ‘Easy’ and there are a choice of sleeves and skirts. I wanted as much coverage as possible so went for the longest sleeve and, being very, very, short I was able to make it a maxi dress without having to use more material than the pattern suggested!”

“The Tana Lawn® is very fine and lovely to wear – but for modesty’s sake I decided to line the dress – and in the spirit of recycling I used some Mitsi White on White that had a previous life as a nightdress I made a couple of years ago.”

“As I’m not a very experienced dressmaker the finished item was a bit voluminous so I made a fabric belt to cinch it in to give more shape, and even had a bit left over to go round my sun hat.”

“Now all I need is some warm, sunny weather – preferably on a foreign holiday……😁”
