I’m so happy to have made it through the last round! Thanks, voters! This week we got to work with, what I’m sure is, one of all of our favorite patterns. I have made countless dresses from this Siena Dress pattern. I wanted to take it up to the next level and make something slightly costumey and over the top, which is not something I normally do. I envisioned this dress for a vintage circus themed themed birthday party. (You can see my inspiration board here) I wanted to incorporate the bold stripes of the tent and the wide front opening, the bunting flags, circus lettering and some black for that vintage circus costume element.
It has rust and cream colored stripes on the skirt with a grey ruffle around the bottom with pick ups on the front. The top has a sapphire silk initial ‘A’ on it in circus style font. The sleeves are another stripe with pick ups and they have teeny grey bows at the shoulder.To top it off, a black and grey headband to match.
The back has a big detachable dupioni silk bow. The socks are little bunting flag socks.
What I love about this is you can take it up a notch with a tutu or take it down by removing the big bow in the back and letting down the pick ups. It’s exactly what I love about this pattern- you can use it for anything! I hope you like this look as much as I do!
