I had to change the skirt from the concept sketch. When I went to get the floral fabric cut, there was slightly less of it than what I needed, but the fabric was so gorgeous I thought I would just make it work! I think all the skirts are going to end up being the same because of my fabric constraints. The stomachers, neckline treatments and sleeves will still be different though.
Ta da! While the Merry Dress was all about lighthearted colors and winsome ruffles, the Fidelity Dress puts the focus on delicate details.
The neckline is softened by a hint of dainty lace.
Bows and ribbon edging set off the contrasting sleeve ruffle.
Here is some of Elna's handiwork. Isn't it lovely Theresa? Oh, and yes Lisa, Elna is the brand name of the serger, I didn't come up with it on my own. ;-)
I love the way it's turned out! Seeing each dress come together is so much fun. Of course, now I can't wait to see the next one . . .
