This week's version features a solid color bodice with a print for the skirt. The tulip-print fabric is from Amy Sedaris' fabric line "I Like You." Isn't it amazing how just a few details can completely change the look of a pattern?
Do you see what's pinned to my breast? A tulip brooch!! I found this vintage gem on Etsy. Nothing like a good matching novelty brooch to make an outfit.

I didn't do any pattern alterations, so you're looking at the same dress sans the bow. That means this version also has pockets, which are always fun, and I did a lapped zipper like I mentioned last time.
I am currently reading the Flavia de Luce series, which is about a spunky 11-year old in 1950 with a penchant for chemistry and solving murders. In between Flavia, novelty brooches, and a snazzy new handmade dress, I just couldn't resist the urge to climb up in a tree and have a bit of an adventure of a non-sewing sort. My mother thought I was a loon, but it was great fun!
