Fab folds sewing challenge and my entry


Big Bow Dress: Entry for Fab Folds Sewing Challenge


Beginning of this month, Rikka of Ricochet and Away invited me for her Fab Folds Challenge 2012. Since I always avoid precise measurements and techniques related to it, I thought this challenge would be a great way to get me to do some of the pleating, pin-tucks etc that I have managed to avoid so far. With that in mind I joined the challenge.


However, When I was thinking of what to make for this challenge, I came across an adorable dress with a pleat in the center and a big bow. I just couldn't help but make it. This wasn't exactly the reason I joined the challenge, but it is just so darn cute. I had to make it before it got buried in a fab fold of my brain. ( Sorry! couldn't resist)


So here's my big bow dress. I love everything about the dress, except that the fabric I chose was a pretty heavyweight so it doesn't drape the way I wanted. But the pattern is pretty easy and looks great. I need to make another version with a lighter weight. I'm thinking of doing another in a yummy color of baby-wale ( baby cord). Maybe, we could do it together then?...Hmm
