My latest make, I'm loving this border print and can't resist a square neckline!

After seeing Gertie's dress a while back I had been planning to make myself one! Luckily I have access to the Gertie fabric range here in Australia at our Spotlight stores, this is also dangerous though. 

I have accumulated a lot of Gertie fabric but have been holding out to use it because it's my "good fabric" so of course I must test patterns until I am certain that I will be happy with the end result and then I allow myself to use the good stuff. Although I have spent a small fortune on my good fabric I have managed to buy a lot of it on sale and on clearance but that doesn't mean that I'll waste it on any old project.

I used a mash up of patterns and made a change to the bodice of the pattern which wasn't that major, I just ignored the split in the bodice so I could have a straight square neckline. Square necklines are probably my most favourite neckline, I also think they are quite flattering on me but I really just love them. I am probably just going to end up making a lot of square neckline dresses for myself over time haha!

This dress was a pretty simple make, the most time consuming was gathering that skirt and the cotton sateen fabric is quite thick so it was the part that required the most patience! Good thing I don't mind gathering, most of my makes involve it. I'm still not sure if I'm 100% happy with my bodice fabric print placement but nonetheless I still love this dress. 

I lined the bodice with a light black fabric which looks nice on the inside (sorry I haven't taken photos of the inside)! One little that I really love is that I made the pockets with tiny roses from this fabric which looks so sweet when I pop something in them (a little design detail that I'll only notice when I wear it but sometimes they are the best details). This is really great fabric as it has different size roses so you can be as creative as you want with it, I also bought it in white ha! I also ordered myself some garment tags to attach inside my garments when I finish them, oh my does that feel satisfying when I complete a project!

  1. You did an amazing job! I've been eyeing up Gertie's fabric range lately (and one of the things I miss no longer living in Aus is no more Spotlight!) But I may have to take the plunge one of these days. I love a border print, and this one is just divine.
