This dress is a bit unlike what I usually create but I love the fabrics, khaki poplin for sleeves and a heavy weight linen for the bodice (not sure of color). Of course, I had to funk it up a bit so I pinned a few birds and flowers to the bodice and added a red babywhale corduroy
sash to the empire waist.
The birds will most likely be handstitched (blanketstitch) as well as the flowers. I think at the hem I will add another blanket stitch in red.
Would love to know your thoughts thus far...
