a new dress

Here's Ginger, so eagerly modeling her new dress. This dress is a prototype of one I plan on making for the spring season coming upon us. It's a slightly different version of this dress. These dresses are so feminine and fun. I really like how the elastic at the neck and waist help to make this dress fit such a variety of shapes and sizes. And it's comfortable to wear.

For the main part of the dress I used an old sheet in all my favorite colors. The ruffles are made of a stripey seersucker that says "beach" to me. I really like to mix the old with the new. It breathes new life into something old, and it gives a rich history to something with no history yet. Maybe a little bit like sourdough starter.
