70s flower power

DSCN6026Like a lot of people I loved the floral theme for this month.  I was less than impressed when Miss Bossy got her hands on the theme and insisted that I use a non-floral fabric in my make too!  However, I needed some bias binding for my floral make and found a perfectly matching plain cotton in my stash so this was my concession to the mix of solids and florals.

I used a 1970s pattern to make this dress for a recent sunny holiday.  The main fabric is a floral viscose that I had in my stash and there’s definitely no missing the flowers!

I bound the arm holes and the hem with bias binding made from an orange cotton that I had in my stash.  It was a perfect match for the orange flowers, which I found pleasing.
