Spring has finally arrived in Boston. For the past few weeks, I’ve been getting ready for the warmer weather by sewing a number of spring dresses.
For the reverse side, I used a small peacock print from the Birds and Berries line by Lauren and Jessi Jung.
I recently taught a workshop on the Schoolhouse Tunic. As my demo tunic, I used this lovely fabric a friend brought back for me from Yu Chau Street in Hong Kong.
I made two Kimono Dresses to give a birthday presents.
For K., I used AMH cotton voile.
I used boarder print rayon to make this one for A.
I’m scheduled to teach a workshop on the Washi Dress, so I made two versions of the dress to help me prepare. I loved doing the shirring at the back of the dress. There was something so satisfying watching the elastic stink up after I blasted it with steam.
I made the scoop neck version using “Raise the Roof” by Jay McCarroll from my stash.
I have another spring dress lined up, so hopefully, I’ll be able to share that with you soon.
