Her Post about the Pattern: Peony
What kind of fabric did you use? It’s some kind of rayon that I picked up at the sales corner of my local fabric store.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I went for floral print with small flowers. Somehow I always end up picking up pieces of clothing in floral print with small flowers. That’s part of my style I guess. I didn’t really edit anything on the dress pattern itself, but I left out the cummerbund style belt. So once the dress was finished I opted for a small belt I already owned.
What thoughts do you have about the project? I had a blast making this dress. The instructions were very clear and there weren’t too many pattern pieces. I definitely love the shape of the dress, even though when I first saw it appear on the blog and in the shop, I wasn’t convinced it would be something for me. But it’s definitely a great basic shape and you can add all kinds of elements to it to tailor it to your liking. I can see myself making more of these Peony dresses in the future in all kind of fabrics with prints and without prints. A little black dress with this pattern would be perfect! Or a little blue dress. Or a little green dress…
