Bubble Dress

29 Jan

For my sisters-in-law’s upcoming wedding to take place on Valentine’s Day, I wanted to make a new dress H. could wear to the rehearsal ceremony and rehearsal dinner. I made her the Bubble Dress from Oliver and S. The top is in a size 4 and the skirt is in size 5. Since I have been battling a cold for almost a week now, I fear there are a lot of mistakes. See if you can find them. I don’t recommend sewing with a head cold.

I used a soft cotton sateen fabric for the dress and a mid-weight cotton print for the lining. When H. first saw the dress, she said she wanted to wear it inside out. Luckily, she changed her mind and is now willing to wear it with the boring non-print side facing out. Her main complaint was that the dress didn’t twirl up enough for her liking, but at least she likes it enough to try it on.

I’m hoping to make her a shirt out of the left over lining fabric before I tackle hemming her flower girl dress and J.’s. tux.

    I love this dress. The bubble dress and the lining are adorable — as is H. I really can’t wait to see the tux for J however! That’s an impressive undertaking!

    […] Anna Tunic Dress May 27, 2010 Filed under: Finished Projects,Sewing — bobble @ 6:09 am Tags: amy butler, Anna Tunic Dress, Liberty of London, Tana Lawn I suppose the sole benefit of having to take an unexpected day off from work due to an act of vandalism is that I get to do a little day-time sewing.  It is extremely rare that I get time alone at home, but in between making phones calls, filing various reports and walking the kids to and from school, I was able to pull out my abandoned Anna tunic dress and finish it yesterday.  A few months back, I splurged a purchased a few yards of the Purple Flowers print by Liberty of London from the Tana Lawn line. I adore Liberty of London fabric and wish I could indulge a bit more. For the lining, I used the same sateen cotton fabric I used to make this bubble dress. […]
