This version is just as fun as the first. I like the quirky feel the polka dots adds.
Unlike, the yellow version, I feel like the details of the seaming are lost in the small scale print I chose. I knew this was a risk when I was making it, but I do not mind. The fabric is a mid-weight cotton with a slight texture that holds its' shape well. Knowing the volume and angles would be maintained, I proceeded with this print. If you plan to make this in a print, I suggest you choose a sturdy fabric with a large scale print so all of the fun of this pattern is not lost.
I like that by lining it this way, I can stand the collar up or flip it down.
I decided, to omit the arm facings and use bias tape instead. I did this just to test it because I had it on hand. It was faster than the facing and had the same result.
So, what do you think? Are the dramatic elements lost in the print? Is this a dress better suited for larger prints or solids?
I love them both and plan to make more. It is a fun everyday show stopper perfect for the Texas heat.
