Completed: Sew Dolly Clackett Dress

What is so great about Roisin is that she knows what she likes, she does it well, and this seems to bring her a lot of joy. In fact, this is why I read her blog -- to me, she radiates and embodies the pure joy of sewing. Mind you, her beautiful smile also has something to do with that. :-) Roisin gives me the sense that as long as we're sewing, things are going to be okay, you know? Also, she sews A LOT. Have you seen the number of dresses in her closet? Talk about inspiring!

Pattern: self-drafted lobster dress pattern, frankensteined with the very excellent Cami Dress by Pauline Alice. Fabric: synthetic mystery fabric from stash. It was my intention, with the full skirt and fun heels, to echo Roisin's style, in a way that still felt me. Also, this dress works pretty well with my figure, which is also to me what Roisin is all about -- knowing what works for you and having fun with it!

But now, tell me Roisin, do you really wear all those pretty heels to work? How do you do it?! My feet are killing me from just the pictures!!

  2. What a great dress, Adrienne! I love the green shoes you paired it with. But like you, they would hurt after a bit. My heel-wearing days are behind me (what few I had).

    During a meet-up I witnessed Roisin walk about Bath in her heels like it was her job. She's a heel-wearing pro!

    1. Yeah, I never had any heel-wearing days. The best part about blogging is that we get to live out the fantasy of wearing heels, without actually going through the hell of actually walking in them. Unless you're Roisin, from what I understand. Maybe I should fly to London and take heel-walking classes from her one of these days.

  4. I absolutely love it! The dress has everything to become a wardrobe staple! RE: hills. I wore hills a few times to work and never, never doing it again!

  5. This is so lovely and sweet! You did a great job of incorporating your own style into the sew-along theme. I bet you'll get so much wear out of this!
