I'm ahead of the game this month, having made by dress for June already! This is for the challenge set by Margaret on her blog Alice and Camilla whereby all participants create a little dress every month.
If you hadn't already noticed, my dress is orange! One of my favourite colours and it seems appropriate for this month as we have already had some very hot weather here in the UK.
I didn't really have a plan for this dress and pretty much made it up as I went along (as is evidently obvious from looking at the photo!).
The dress is made up of three layers. Some white felt, old book page, and some lovely orange fabric. I machine stitched all the layers together, folding back some of the fabric in places, just randomly and machine top stitched to finish it off. A bit plain compared to some of my earlier dresses, but it's a dress for our hot summer (while it lasts!)
Here it is with some of the other dresses in the wardrobe I made, further details about which are here.
If you'd like to see other participants' dresses for June here's the link. This month Margaret is also offering her own June dress as a giveaway. To be in with a chance to win it, you just need to make your own dress for June and put a link on Margaret's blog. Good eh!
