Last weekend we went to one of my favorite places. I just love being away from the city and enjoy nature. It is so liberating! Also, I finally got to take some good pictures of the second Jaanu dress I made.
If you want to see my previous Jaanu dress go here. :D
I just LOVE this dress pattern! I love it's classic look and I'm sure it will be one of my go to patterns for the Fall.
For this dress, I used only one color, a beautiful burgundy. I also chose corduroy because I thought it would make a great version for the colder weather that is coming our way. Ahhhh... I wish Summer lasted for ever, but sadly that's not the case. Fall will be a good change though. This dress would also look great layered with some tights and a coat or an under shirt.
For this dress, I raise the pleats by an inch. I just wanted to see what it would look like and the difference is very settle. I think I like it both ways. I also added buttons at the end of the pleats, to add a little vintage look to the dress. My daughter really liked how this dress turned out! That's always a plus!!!
For the back of the dress, I used an invisible zipper like the pattern says, but I only had to white and was too lazy to go buy another one. The white is noticeable, but I kind of like it! I'm all about embracing imperfections, hehe!
The wind was blowing so hard that day, but it helped make the pictures more fun. Don't you think?
