Creation: Gingko Print Burda Dress
Fabrics Used: Harmony Art Gingkos Sateen
The Visionary: Laura Mae, Laura Mae Designs
Our Thoughts: This Harmony print made for a perfectly festive holiday dress!
Ginkgo leaves are not a traditional Christmas choice, but this dress turned out to be the perfect holiday frock. I rather like the unexpected print in a traditional color scheme on this beautiful cotton sateen.
Since finishing the dress on December 12th, I have already worn it three times. That is almost unheard of for me as I tend to go for a bit more variety in my outfit choices in any given month. I guess you could say I am quite pleased with the way this project turned out!
The dress is also incredibly easy to wear!
I was not entirely sure that the bloused bodice was going to work for me, but with the help of a wide belt, I really like the look.
The bell shaped skirt is also becoming one of my favorite silhouettes.
And there is a good chance that there will be more 1960s style dresses in my future! I think I would even love a solid colored version of this design, provided I can find the right fabric. What is it about solid colors that I find so off putting when it comes to textiles!?!
