I’ve been totally in love with this dress from when it was first announced at Farbenmix. I couldn’t wait until summer to sew it up for Elsa. I just had to get it out of my system before I could sensibly move on to planning her summer wardrobe as every fabric I looked at was a potential Halima.
I eventually plumped for a really beautiful Stenzo red poplin with big white dots that I bought from Crafty Mamas in Australia on sale. Wow. Some of the most lovely fabric I have ever sewn with.
I teamed it with my precious leftovers of Riley Blake’s Sugar and spice and some Spotlight turquoise gingham. The reds are a perfect match. I’m only sad such a little amount peeps out.
She hasn’t even tried this one on yet but I’ll try to catch some photos when she does.
