A Frock by Friday™: May con't

May 11, 2010

If you missed my previous post, see here. I'm starting a new Frock by Friday™ for the month of May.
Taly suggested a really cool free pattern that I am now in love with. The sleeves, the belt, the skirt. I think it's perfect for summer while still being modest. What do you think?

Wonderful! Fabulous choice.

HodgePodge said... Best Blogger Tips

Is there elastic in the hem? I think so. What an interesting idea. But I'd probably leave that out. :-)

Ruhammie said... Best Blogger Tips

I LOVE IT!! I can't wait, I'm already thinking of what fabric I have on hand...hhmmm...do you think you could include suggestions for lengthening it a bit? I don't like to reveal that much leg, I still have baby-weight to lose. :)

Jo - To a Pretty Life said... Best Blogger Tips

That is an adorable dress, and the fabric is gorgeous. But I don't think I could wear that style. I'll think about it ;-)

Sarah O. said... Best Blogger Tips

I see why you're in love with it. Such a pretty dress!

Katie said... Best Blogger Tips

YES! Everything I require--sleeves, modesty, but still cute. :)

Amy said... Best Blogger Tips

I love it! The style is so different from the last frock that our wardrobe will be so much more versitile with this little number! Thanks!

BJ and Shalene said... Best Blogger Tips

How cute is that! Love it! Did you post the link to the actual pattern and I just completely missed it?

WhenSheWasGood said... Best Blogger Tips

Completely adorable! I'm in!

Cook Clean Craft said... Best Blogger Tips

That's a lovely dress, although I'd probably make the skirt more A-Line, but would love to sew-along!

D.Jones said... Best Blogger Tips

Can't wait to get started!

Kelley said... Best Blogger Tips

so great!

emily said... Best Blogger Tips

fantastic. im in. even though its approaching winter over here it means ill have something for spring. thanks for this.

andreak said... Best Blogger Tips

Well I loved the first one. Hopefully this won't be while I'm gone on a quilting retreat. If so, I will have to work it in after I get back. The buttonholes scare me a little. I have never done one. I am with the others about lengthening it a bit. I am too old for a skirt that short.

kristiyana shinta said... Best Blogger Tips

wonderful, i love it so,, love the colour, love the pattern,, love it so much :)

Amy said... Best Blogger Tips

I'd love to join in this time. I am very new to patterns and sewing clothes so I hope that I can keep up. I'm also not sure on what kind of fabric to use. I wonder if a linen would look nice?

Kelsey said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm ready! Let's get started

Joey and Laura said... Best Blogger Tips

I like this one so much more than the other options.

SA said... Best Blogger Tips

Count me in !

EHC said... Best Blogger Tips

This one is great! I will add a few inches on the bottom to make it even a little more modest, but I like the overall shape. Free patterns are the best!

EHC said... Best Blogger Tips

I just looked at your proposed dress on the Bernina website (http://www.bernina.com/3Series/DE/pattern.html) and was very happy to see the pattern comes in a little larger sizes--it looks like it goes up to a European size 46. We can all learn Swiss German too. Yay!

MICHELLE ERFURT, MT-BC said... Best Blogger Tips

I really like it and am excited to play along this time. A little nervous since it will be my first dress. But ready to give it a go!

Charlotte said... Best Blogger Tips

I have went to the link to get the pattern for preparation and it says that the file is corrupt...If this is the dress that the sew along will use I wonder if there would be any way of posting the pattern without any copy right issues or if some one else is able to download it if they would not mind emailing me a copy. I really want to join in on this sew along.
-Thank You- Charlotte

Eric and Carrie said... Best Blogger Tips

I've always been afraid to make clothing for me because women are curvy and it's often hard to get a good fit. But I think I might try it this time now that I've seen how you break it down into manageable steps. Thanks, you're great!

miss z said... Best Blogger Tips

Yes! I love the floral pattern. Can't wait to start!!

Angel said... Best Blogger Tips

Definitely the best of the bunch. I love it!

Jac said... Best Blogger Tips

Yeah nice. I agree about lengthening it as well as I'm tall so it'll be even shorter on me!

M&Co said... Best Blogger Tips

Love your frock by friday posts!! Thank you soooo much!

Emma said... Best Blogger Tips

Eek, a bit short for me - all you guys must have great legs to show off... not moi!!! ;) I might make it as an overdress to wear with some linen trousers... otherwise perhaps I'll wait till June.. I'll be watching the posts tho... good luck everyone :)x

Caci said... Best Blogger Tips

I love it! Super cute and great for summer! Hopefully I will finish the frock by Friday this time, instead of it still waiting to be hemmed! LOL

Leeya Engel said... Best Blogger Tips

Binkydoll said... Best Blogger Tips

I love it, it's a great choice. Can't wait to try. Try being the key word here in my new garment adventure.

shell26 said... Best Blogger Tips

I am so excited! I made three variations of the last (still havn't posted them)! This has given me the push to do more sewing for myself. Thank you!

PemiRobin said... Best Blogger Tips

Would love to participate. I have JUST the fabric.

Karen said... Best Blogger Tips

Do you think if we start tommorow we would be done by Friday ? I've been waiting all days for updates regarding this !Thanks!

Rhonda said... Best Blogger Tips

That is fabulous! I wanna play too!

Rachel said... Best Blogger Tips

Me to! I'd love to play! What week does this start?

Melissa said... Best Blogger Tips

Very nice choice! I'm in the middle of copying your "Lawn Frock" (I just can't afford the $88 Shabby Apple wants for it! eek!) but this will be next on my list!

Heather said... Best Blogger Tips

I like the idea posted above to make the skirt a little more A-line. Do you think you could walk us through that? Also, I saw bias tape on the materials list--single- or double-fold, and how wide? Thanks!

FineAndGood said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm also planning on doing an a-line version, it will flatter me more. Plus I checked toe measurements and I think I need to make the dress a bit bigger in the bust and hips, any help is appreciated, however I'm prepared to wing it. I'm super excited and ready to start anytime!
