And the bubble made from the inspiration...
The blue fabric I bought on Ebay, it is a kind of lightweight poly/cotton type (if I had to guess I'd say rayon-ish) fabric. I was kind of at a loss when it came in the mail as to what to do with it but when I read the fabric recommendations on this pattern it suggested 'light and airy fabrics' and so I figured it would be perfect--not too hot and not too heavy to weigh down the bubble. The yellow fabric was another Ebay purchase from way back. For the button I decided to do a fabric covered button with the same yellow fabric. Both dresses are lined with a white broadcloth which is also light for the spring/summer. And here's the model again!!
Please excuse her twin brother's head in the far left corner of the first picture, it's expected that when you WANT to get both in a picture you can't but when you want one, you get TWO! Such is life with TWINS! haha
Anyway, I had a great experience with this pattern. It was an easy sew and easy to follow, I would highly recommend it. The time it took was really minimal compared to many patterns out there and I really thought bubble dresses took much longer. I will most likely be making more! So that's my Day 1 look...onto Day 2!
