Springtime in Paris

This week’s sewing day was a lot more focused than last! In fact, so far I have worked on exactly one thing. But at least I got it finished!

Have you seen Parisville, by Tula Pink? I am in love with this fabric. I just got a bunch of it last week and couldn’t wait to make it into a dress. I knew to hold up to the bold print (especially the cameo) this dress would have to be special.

I think I accomplished that. I love the puffed sleeves – they just scream Spring to me.

And the buttons on the back with the flower and paisley detail are adorable.

The skirt has two layers, the cameo layer splits in the front to reveal the damask dots underneath. And it’s a very full skirt. 80″ of fabric gathered into that 24″ bodice. So much twirly fun to be had.

I used over three yards of fabric for this little one to fit Lottie (3T). If I could spare the ten yards it would take, I would probably make one for myself. Oh well, I will just have to put it on her as much as I can (starting with a photo shoot on Wednesday, I’m sure) and dream of walking in Paris in the Springtime myself…
