Nothing like posting sewing projects completely out of order..
Here’s my first Darling Ranges dress!
dress: self-made (Darling Ranges by Megan Nielsen), headband: F21, shoes: Seychelles Ampersand
This is probably the least well put-together version of this dress that I’ve made but it’s one of my favorites. The chiffon was an absolute nightmare to work with but I like the end effect. Plus I was figuring out the pattern as I went along so there’s small iffy bits, especially along the placket and neckline.
I went entirely according to the pattern on this one but the waistline is a touch too high for my freakishly long torso so I lowered it by two inches on all of the other ones. It kind of works with the chiffon though, kind of a babydoll dress effect.
Plus now I have something to wear with my Seychelles. 🙂
I know, I know. I have yet to post pictures of Darling Ranges #1. I only finished making the back ties last night and wore it for the first time. Have I mentioned how much I love this pattern?? I ended up making another one today, that’s how much. Meet Darling Ranges #2!
dress: self-made (Darling Ranges by Megan Nielsen), shoes: Nine West (thrifted)
I made a few changes to this one, but nothing huge. I added about two inches to the waist, and then made the skirt hit about 1/2″ lower than the other one.
I scored a huge stash of gorgeous prints when I went fabric shopping with my friend’s mom last week. This coral-y red print was my favorite of the bunch, and I also picked up a gorgeous pale spring green version of the same print. I think that one’s going to be Darling Ranges #3. Ooh maybe a sleeveless version!
No, but seriously. If you don’t own this pattern go buy it. Immediately. And then make at least four versions of it. Do it. Now.
