Elisalex is a favourite of Roisin’s and the nautical theme of the Paul Brent fabric also echos many of Roisin’s lovely frocks. Also, in true Roisin style, some fancy shoes.
I’ve made the Elisalex dress and bodice before, so I used the muslin (with a FBA and narrower back) from those. I lined the bodice in red voile, included red poplin pockets (all from the stash), understitched the lining and used an invisible zip.
Sew Dolly Clackett, to Roisin and Nic, all the very best for your upcoming wedding. Thanks for all the dresses and the craic. Here’s to a long and happy future with many delicious picnics together, that may or may not include lobster and a gingham tablecloth xx.
What do you wear to a picnic? What if lobster’s on the menu?
