I forget about yellow as a color. I like it, but I guess I gravitate towards other colors first. But when I saw this Milly print from Emma One Sock, I was convinced that I need to pay more attention to yellow. It’s just so happy! I just so happened to have a gift certificate to EOS from my birthday and I had been haunting their site frequently to find just the right stuff. I’ve become a fan of Milly too since I bought this fabric and also a pretty voile from Elliott Berman when they had their anniversary sale. They make such adorable girly clothes–so this seemed a good pattern.
It being sweltering, this rayon knit is lovely and cool. You all know I’m a knit addict, but they are too hot in the summer, but rayon is nice. My beef with rayon knits is that most of them are wimpy, and the ones that aren’t (like this one) are super pricey. Yay for birthday money!
The pattern is BWOF 02-2007-123. I made it before as my Peacock Dress. I mistakenly put the wrap piece on top instead of beneath the full front piece on this one–it gives it a different look than the other dress, but I think I like the other one better as I can wear a belt. A belt with this one is too much on my short waist with the short piece on top.
Overall, I’m glad I could pull off making such a happy summery dress before it got too cool to wear this.
