We've been aware of the Staple Dress for a while now but I only got round to ordering the PDF pattern from April Rhodes about a month ago. The PDF instructions are fab but, like all PDF patterns, a bit of a pain to print off and assemble (imagine lots of grumbling whilst getting stuck to long stretches of cellotape). So imagine our joy when we discovered that April had plans for a paper pattern!
For my first I chose this gorgeous blue Art Gallery fabric.
For the second, this beautifully soft lawn from Sevenberry was just begging to be 'Stapled'! I did shirr the middle but added a wrapped belt so it can be worn with ...
I have a third planned in this amazing midnight floral lawn, again by Sevenberry - this one I think with the dropped hem?
