P4P Sweetheart Dresses
Both these dresses were made quite awhile ago. The blue/gray stripe was made in Septemberish? The green in November.
Both are made from the Patterns For Pirates Sweetheart Dress pattern.
Size: Straight size Large
Fabric: 2 yards Heather Gray and Navy Ponte Knit purchased December 2014 from Hancocks for $10.78
Thoughts: Love love love. I really love this dress. It is one of my favorite makes to date.
I also made some PegLegs in size 1x (one size up from my measurements because I wanted them to be a little looser for the material). I used 1 yard of rose Double brushed Poly. they are heavenly soft on the legs – like wearing a cloud! The leggings cost about $7 to make.
This is a mash up using the P4P circle skirt and Renfrew on top.
Size: Straight size Large for the P4P, size 8 for the renfrew on top (I made sure to blend the patterns together at the waist)
Fabric: 2 yards super soft Brushed Hunter Green Sweater Knit purchased from Knitpop in October. It was in an auction box so both yards cost $11.40 after shipping.
Thoughts: It’s ok. I like it. I feel a little matronly in it though. I made it to go with some green/black leggings but then the greens didn’t look right together. I'm not sure what I'll wear underneath. Winter in Wisconsin is brutal so no naked legs!
I was able to get some pictures taken of most of my makes so expect a few posts upcoming.
