Back in the early years of high school I had an English teacher called Ms. Rosser. She was smart, funny and just enough eccentric to be a breath of fresh air in the conservative country town I lived in. Her statement shoe of choice was always a brightly coloured Mary Jane in magenta, cobalt, even orange. This dress kind of reminds me of her.
Here I have combined two of my great sewing loves: Nani Iro double gauze with a Sewaholic pattern. For a pear shaped lady like myself Sewaholic patterns are amazing. They fit right out of the envelope and I never have to make any adjustments. I cut a size 8 at the shoulders and tapered down to a 10 for the rest. It was such an enjoyable pattern to sew up and even if you are new to sewing, the instructions are super clear and easy to follow. Thanks Tasia.
