A Pretty Blue Elisalex

Yet another summery Elisalex dress!live-front

I made this dress side by side with the pink floral version I posted a few weeks ago.  I love when I know a pattern fits me and I can just blast through the process!  The fabric is a sheet set I bought, once again, at the op shop I work at.  Seriously, I get so excited when I get to sort through the newly-donated linen.  I’ve found some great stuff!

blue-manne-collectionThis is quite a heavy sheet (maybe the same weight as a quilting cotton, but with a coarser weave).  This isn’t quite as summery and light as my voile version, but it’s really cute and, to be honest, will probably get more wear.live-front-closeAnd, best of all, I still have enough sheet left to make another dress, at least!  And check out my lapped zipper – I’m getting better at this!live-back
