1. I can't come up with the name of the color of this dress. Blueish Green? Mint-ish?Aqua?
2. I can't come up with the fabric name either. I think it's Bengaline. It's ribbed, similar to a grosgrain ribbon.
3. I haven't had time to setup a photo shoot in this dress.
3. And the waist is so small on this dress that I can't get it back on my dress form to take a picture.
So I apologize for this post. I'll do the best I can to describe it and sorry for the pictures of it on the hanger. I plan to wear it soon (if the weather would ever warm up), so hopefully I'll get a picture in it.
I REALLY REALLY like this dress too. I love the color and the pretty pleats! I used the Simplicity 1873 pattern to make this dress, but I cut the back in a lower scoop. I wanted to make the tabs on the side, but I cut out the pattern and I cannot for anything find the pattern for the tabs?!? I searched everywhere!
I took several pictures of the progress while making the dress, which I posted along the way on twitter.
