A very versatile dress



It all started when I decided I was a little tired of winter clothes and decided I wanted some color in my closet.

I had a problem with the capelet, you remember that the cloth was a piece spots left over from another dress years ago, so it was impossible to get more and I had to settle for a piece I had, so that after cutting the top dress and the bow of the neck, had only this to line the capelet. The result is a capelet with polka dots inside front and back fabric interior with blue cloth dress. I also would have liked longer to live up to the capelet, but there was more material ...



  
Accessories are important, you know .... white shoes, white handbag, white lace gloves, blue earrings are amazing twins of these and have been waiting patiently in a drawer to show up the right clothes to show off.
To close the capelet, I just did two small buttonholes and the closing went through them I did here with two thimbles buttons and a piece of string them together.

I love the dress, I admire its cheerful color and the arch of the neck but it didn´t go as wide as the image of the pattern (I do not have this pattern, only the image), because of the lack of material, but I still I think it was very good.
  At the end I fold back the comfort of the dress but not required, it is just a decorative element, but eliminated the band of blue that is the pattern image in the lower chest.

I can do the dress more "informal " to wear every day if I combine it with a white cardigan, maybe this is a summer dress and cardigan over it keeps me warm when it's a bit of fresh air ...

                                                        But maybe rain today ....

So I turn the dress into something more wintry, coordinating it with a coat the same color in my wardrobe takes about three years.
   Now ... I had so much fun making this dress, I really enjoyed looking for accessories to match and now it is time to have some fun out of walk with it ...
     You know Lady, have fun sewing.
