Most of you surely noticed this new pattern from StraightGrain Patterns... and it is A M A Z I N G !!!

While my first idea was to make a top, I am happy that I switched ideas,
because the flow of this dress is so pretty.

While selecting the right fabric for it, I did some research, looking what other seamstresses made,
and I noticed that light-woven fabric would be best. So I picked this beautiful fabric from Fragile.be 
which is in fact a Belgian maternity brand. I bought it at one of their stock sales.

While sewing with a deadline, I grumbled a few times,
- why the hell did I chose pleats and 7 buttons !!! - but it is oh so worth it! 

By the way, when changing clothes, you only have to open one,
so cheaters can sew on 6 fake buttons and only make one real buttonhole at the top ;-)

I already cut the next piece of fabric to make a top, 
so be warned, this pattern is addictive !!!

Thanks An, for inviting me!
