Blue Derby Dress

Love my untanned feet.

In the midst of a sew along, what does one do while they wait for their next step…sew up a second Derby dress of course! This time I made View A, with the contrast Peter Pan collar. I opted not to add the large ruffle at the base and made a made matching fabric belt just as I did for View B. A super quick sew.

I chose some almost sheer cotton lawn, so instead of using the facings as per the pattern, I did a fully lined version and am really happy with the results. I’ll take princess seams over darts any day!

The Marianne Dress Sew Along has a couple weeks left; really looking forward to debuting that dress (despite some cutting issues that may have required a glass of wine to handle).

  1. I don’t know what any of that seamstress talk means, but it looks good! You look good in blue.

    • Haha. I didn’t even think of the “steamstress speak”. It’s so ingrained. (hehe). Thank you!! I do love blue.
