A while ago I was one of the participants in the Take One Dress series. Today, I am bringing my post home, because Victoria posted her version of the inspiration dress I gave her. It's so cool what she did, I Love it. Go check it out. :)
I loved the colors of the original dress, but couldn't quite find the right fabric. Nothing really spoke to me, until I looked through my stash and found beautiful linen by Anna Maria Horner. I loved the color palette. It also seemed to go very well with the gorgeous fall weather we had.
Here is what I have chosen for Victoria. I love everything about this dress (well, besides the price). I like the mix of slightly preppy and slightly whimsical. It's practical and fun. I also have a soft spot for border prints, show me a good border print fabric and I am in love (here is a similar dress I made for Ania last year) . :) Can't wait to see your interpretation Victoria! Good luck. :) Thank you so much for inviting me!
