bird print dressApril 23, 2008
Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for anything with birds on it (“bird” is actually my family’s nickname for me and has been since I was a wee girl), so I was immediately attracted to this bird print fabric by Alexander Henry designs. The pattern I used was Built By Wendy 3964 — but I omitted the inset and the sleeves, basically out of laziness! I decided to be bold and use a contrasting bias tape to finish the armholes. I wish I’d made the skirt just a bit longer so that it ends right below the knee — but otherwise, I’m pretty happy with the result.
