Summer Boho Dress - Take 2

It's done!

The second boho dress with belt is all finished, and has already been worn by Miss Alannah...

Simplicity Pattern 2689
Bottom ruffle personal addition
 And although it looks fine now (well, I think so :-P) it also leaves a little room for growth...

By Saturday night, I just had the belt to go, when I went and had a disagreement with a tin can (while trying to squish it for the recycle bin)...anyhow, the tin can won and I now have a decent gash across my thumb, which is healing but makes some things a little tricky, when trying not to put added pressure on the wound.

But Lana really wanted to wear the dress on Sunday, so finish the belt I did.

And now that it's all done, onto some new projects!
Including this one...

Summer Dress Making

Having eased back on markets this year, I'm taking the time to enjoy my making again.

I stumbled upon a couple of summer dresses that I had cut out last year, so thought this was a good place to start.

Here's the first dress...a boho style dress with a contrasting belt...for my niece....

I've nearly finished another dress like this, same style but different fabrics, for Miss Alannah. Will share soon.

Now I know I've been a really slack blogger BUT I've been a really good Instagrammer (pictures above from Instagram gallery) so please feel free to pop over to Instagram and say 'hi' to me at 'polkadotlane'.
