Another Ottobre pattern. I think I could make my children's entire wardrobes from these pattern magazines, and never run out of ideas!
This fabric is lots of lavender buttons on a purple background. The buttons are sort of swirly, and it reminded me of a 50's pattern for some reason. I got the fabric on sale locally for a really good price, but when I got to the collar, it looked too 'homemade' (and I don't mean in a good way!) I decided to do the collar in the coordinating solid of the underskirt, and I think it worked really well. If the cuff's hadn't been done (and turned out perfect for once!!) I would have done them in the coordinating fabric too.
She loved this dress though, and wore it for picture day at school.
