Finally some outdoor pictures! It was a breezy day and warm enough to go out and enjoy the sunshine! So, here's my reproduction of Olivia's geometric print dress from The Waltons.
You can see Olivia's dress HERE.
I found this buckle at a thrift store. I'm keeping my eye's out for more simple little buckles to go with the dresses I make. I may just get the belt kits too.
The only thing I'm not sure I like about this dress is the print of the fabric. It's the closest I've been able to find that compares to the print Olivia's dress was made out of....so, this is what I got. I hope it has the same 'look' at least from a distance : )
My little man loves to play outside : ) When he saw me out the window, he rushed to get his boots on and brought me his jacket, "I need to be zipped!" he said.
I think I have the collar pretty close to the right shape, I just need to add 1 inch in the length so that there's not such a wide gap in the front.
The dress itself fits well and is very comfortable. I'm not sure if I like the 1/2 sleeves or not. Would they look better shorter? I did them 1/2 length because that's how Olivia's dress was, but they might look better shorter.
