A little mexican

Well, I finally finished the mexican dress. I think it's finished anyway. I had intended on doing some more embroidery on the skirt, but the way the pleats ended up, I wasn't sure how it would look. I quite like the simplicity of the current design, but who knows what might happen if I start to feel stitchy.

I'm quite happy with how this turned out, especially considering some of the problems I had during construction!

For some mexican dress inspiration, look here! That's what got me going in the first place.

I'm loving your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine and leaving such a lovely comment.
The dress is beautiful, and the model is quite stunning as well. I love to make things as well but don't often post them. If my son will wear it, the hat I made for him will show up on the blog soon.

Oh my! What a lovely dress! I had seen the site and thought it looked so scary in terms of work but this proves that simple can be just as exquisite!
