Hooray! we have success!! Remember I told you I wanted to add pockets to this dress?? Well I had a very particular pocket in mind. So late one night last week I stayed up watching you-tube tutorials on this style and I am happy to say that I think I have the technique down pat!
FYI - This version is Fully lined in hot pink voile! This particular purple check is a heavier weight cotton that used to be a tablecloth. This is SO so incredibly comfy and perfect for cooler days. The unlined version would be great in summer for protecting shoulders and arms from the sun. It has a 20 inch invisible zipper that runs down the back. The pocket style is called a 'welt pocket'. They are a bit tricky.
Before I leave for Perth I hope I have a couple more of these in my suitcase. I want one in a yummy barkcloth, one in a pretty awesome mustard horse fabric I have been saving, and one in the most vibrant INCREDIBLE pink check and brown daisy pattern I HAVE EVER LAID EYES ON!!!
I know that gorgeous miss Laura from Kit & Nancy has had her eye on that horse fabric. Miss L, if there is any left over I promise I will save it for you.
Have an awesome day!!
