I really enjoyed making this pattern, Kelly by Trisha's Treasures. It uses only three main pieces: front bodice, front skirt and back skirt. There are also strips of bias which form the binding on the front bodice, extending into ties. It may tie at the neck, or criss-cross and tie at the back waist.
I selected a pink on pink floral print by Fabric Finders.
The bias bindings are Green Cottontail Stripe by Nashville Cotton.
My little dress form is a couple of sizes too small for this particular dress, so it is drooping slightly in the back!
The back waist features a casing with elastic which forms soft gathers.
This method of hemming has long been a favorite of mine. It allows for a nice deep hem, but is easily accomplished all with the ease of machine stitching.
I am so glad that Trisha included it as a feature of her pattern!
It's a perfect dress for running through spring and summer fields of flowers!
An all white version would be lovely for a beach portrait.
