But ya gotta see it in color ...
The background is a blush peach, the flags and flowers have a delicate coloring and an antique feel, the blue is a refreshing periwinkle sea with a swirling paisley pattern.
I am so excited to sew this together ... unfortunately my husband has fixed the lawn mower (for the third time already this summer--he's so handy! And NO! I have not been sabotaging it ... we're just exceptionally hard on it I think.) And the lawn is SO LONG after being away for a week that I have to give my attention to that first today.
However, I decided to give you all a peek (and relieve some of this creative excitement that I have.) Hopefully someone finds this as cute as I do. I'm also considering a version in a twirly girl skirt. I would love to read any feedback, positive or negative, that you may have ... especially helpful criticism! I'm debating whether to sew the straps onto the back or whether to put two more knots ... or maybe I should consider buttons. Anybody have one of these knot dresses and have experience what you like and don't like about the strap-system? Also ... what would be a reasonable price for something like this (you can email me that if you don't want to leave that as a comment. hee hee) If you haven't read yesterday's post on this crazy idea I have and where the $$ from these will be going, please read yesterday's post on "The Skirtings and a Crazy Idea."
And to quell your fears that this is going to be a bikini top dress ... this is what it will potentially look like once it is sewn together (without that gap in the middle.)
Did I mention that the Fourth of July is on a Sunday this year?! Your little firecracker will look SO SWEET in this gem!
