One more Heidi … for now (evil laugh):
I'm not sure if the color really comes across on your screen, but this dress is BLUE. Blue blue blue blue blue. The closest I can come to describing it is that this is the blue that I assumed they painted the :
a deep, brilliant blue, the shade they use for painting carts and wheelbarrows.
Despite it being probably not so good a color for a community hall on Prince Edward Island, I quite like it as a dress!
Here's the bodice — note the lining which I deliberately pressed to show, for a kind of piping effect without the work:
And the same lining as the bodice for the pocket:
I have at least one more Heidi left to come — I managed to cut out FOUR of them in one evening, assembly-line style, and have finished one. Seriously, at this point I hardly want to wear anything else — they're just so comfortable!
