This is what the dress used to look like, back in it’s nightgown days. But then it went on a date with a pair of scissors, and came home looking like this:
I was making a funny face, so that was just cut out. But I love how it wrinkles and how it flows. And also, this thing breathes. Which is necessary for a Utah summer. And I like to think that when paired with a leather belt, it’s not too nightgown-y.
And if I hear any comments about how the 4th of July has already passed, I’ll throw a small fit. Blue, red, and white don’t only mean one thing!
Oh man. I made this quite a while ago. Probably a month or so. But I’m just not that thrilled about it – I didn’t really try to make it cute. And the stuffing is really visible in places. This was the result of a “must-make-toys!” frenzy. And I put it’s head on sideways, which makes me think that it’s always doing the John-Dorian-daydream.
The pattern is Ysolde’s, and should be easily found on Ravelry. But I’m too lazy and over it to link.
