Licorice Parade!


Well, well, well. It's the last parade day for Sew Colette :( I'm sad that it's the last one (for now at least ;)), but I am excited to show off some gorgeous dresses!

Licorice/New Look Hybrid
Jirian made this dress which is part Licorice part New Look 6022. The two patterns together make for a perfect summer dress. I love the yellow belt she added, it really gives a fun pop of color, don't you think?

Another pretty, summer dress! I love how Daisy-40  omitted the sleeves and left the collar. It's also cool how she tied her belt in the front. She mentioned that she is going to post more photos of the dress and I can't wait to see them!

Licorice dress
KJL (aka Mommy in France) made a version on the Licorice dress without the collar or sleeves and it give the dress a whole new look, which I love. Next time I want to make one like hers!

  1. I was not excited on this shape but after seeing all fun creations I may do it one for me too. X

  2. Aw I'm sad I did not finish mine in time to make the parade!!! Oh well, some lovely creations there! :)

    1. How is it going so far? You should still post it in the Flickr group.

    2. I will.... but I am really quite behind! lol

  3. It is lovely to see different versions of the same dress. Sometimes people take it into a direction that you didn't expect and really have to look to see the lines. It's really nice to see such variety.

  4. Congrats on making it through! All the ladies above look great!

    1. Thanks, Madalynne. I'm still in shock that we're done. I guess I can take the book off my desk from its permanent spot for the last five months and put it on the bookshelf :/ Weird.

  5. Thanks for the mention Erin. I wasn't sure about this dress, but now it's finished I do like it.

    I'll definitely get some pics up this weekend with shoes on! Not to mention my face for a change!

    1. You are so very welcome. It's such a lovely dress!
