S2444 | Sew Dolly Clackett!

Here's my dress for the Sew Dolly Clackett. Better late than never, lol. I finished this earlier
 in the week but didn't get to take pictures till I got off work,.....last nite!!
I know, I know, time management.;-)

This sew-along is hosted by Sarah, for all us who stalk Roisin's blog (dolly clackett) as a wedding 
gift from the online community. All dresses are inspired in honor of her impeccable style of dresses.

I chose to make Simplicity's 2444 based on her love for this style of dress. I used a novelty 
cotton I found at Hancock in this Pirate Skull print that I thought was pretty fun. 

I so wish that I could've taken the photo's outside my front door Dolly style, but by 
the time I made it home the sun was going down and the moon was peeping out. 
So the sewing cave it is!

Instead of lining the bodice, I chose to use bias tape around the armholes and neckline. 
I lined the skirt portion in black Kona Cotton. I love the pleating on the full skirt, 
which is unseen on this busy print.

I've been stalking Roisin's blog for quite some time, and I adore 
her many dresses. (even have a few pinned!) When I heard about the sew-along,  
I knew I wanted to join in, but saw the deadline only a week ago.

Check out the pool of all the beautiful dresses created in
 honor of Roisin and Nic. My congrats to the couple on their upcoming nuptials!

Til my next post, C-ya!!
