Green Gingham Wrap Dress

This is my fourth so far, wrap dress...third made for Tina.
So, she wanted a little bit different wrap dress then other two. Since the dress is toxic green, it should be alleviated with white accents...collar, trimmings on the pockets and sleeves and binding.

Strawberry Wrap Dress

This 40's style wrap dress is made of cotton print...strawberries on white dots on light pink background with red satin trim.
Skirt cut is slightly different as on the Cherry Wrap Dress...middle front part is not folded, neckline is rounded, pockets are rounded and sleeves are a little bit longer.

Today I will present the first of three wrap dresses I made for Tina.  
I hope to get some photos of her in those dresses.

This dress is made of cotton print, cherries on black gingham and
supplemented with red trim on the pockets and binding.

Blue Dotty Dress

This is also one of my older dresses sewn two years ago but that dress was not yet presented on the blog.
 Pattern is taken from Burda Style magazine 2009. and it was love at first sight.

Green&Red fabulous combination

I found the perfect pattern for my pants. It's a version of 40's sailor pattern.
Otherwise I'm not a fan of pants, but sometimes comes in handy, for example, when something must be put on without thinking too much and you still want to look good.
 
For this light summer slacks I used cotton lining made for military jackets in military green. As contrast, I put the  red buttons.

Daisy Wrap Dress

I sew my first 40's style wrap dress. 
It is simple pattern, with single button on the neck line holding two upper back sides on the place.
Still thinking should I sew the pockets on...
I love it..can't wait on the warm weather when I'll be able to wear it.

Think this is only the first one.
