MMM 2015 - Day 25

I actually finished this right after the Scout tee dress. I like to line up things to sew with similar colours so I don't need to change threads so often. 

This is Dress No. 1 (bottom) and Wiksten Tank (top) melded together to make a happy fit for me.  The fabric is from the Nani Iro Spring 2015 collection. It's called En Garden. You can see the whole collection here.

I tried my hand at making gathered pockets, which I am quite pleased about. I used the selvedge on one pocket  upside down so when I sit down I can look at it and read it.
This dress says perfectly captures May in my garden, full of wonderful late spring blooms and my first flush of roses.


  1. Oh wow! I love all your makes but this one especially, the colours are amazing and rhe pockets so cute!

  2. Love this! That fabric is wonderful -- and I love what you did with the selvedge on the pocket.

  3. Dear Melissa,
