The first one is the softest rayon I've ever worked with, and comes from their latest collection. The pattern, however, wasn't one I'd pick out from the fabric store, so that was a challenge. My other fabric was my choice, which was a lightweight cherry denim, also a dream to work withBut, it all comes down to the details: my favorite part of most sewing projects.
It's a self drafted pattern, and super easy (and according to Azure comfortable) to put on with just a ribbon for the closing because it's just a faux placket! (Read: no buttonholes necessary! ;) I added a fun little wooden button at the back and glass buttons down the front. I really ruffled the rayon for a different look, and then played with the colors on the dress.
So, take a look at my competitor's design and vote for your favorite HERE!
And for old time's sake, here is a tinier Olive with my winning dress from the first round of Project Run and Play...I guess I do like ruffles. :)
