this was the first time i followed a sewing pattern en francais
my parents would be proud that i've put their money to good use ~ using the French minor i got in college
the Suzanne dress pattern has simple construction ~ no buttons, no zipper, no ties, no snaps, no elastic, no bias tape ~ it just slips over the head
such a unique style & it's reversible as in it looks exactly the same on the front & the back
i liked the Suzanne pattern so much i sewed my daughter 3 of them... one made out of a Liberty of London scarf (remember all the Liberty of London fabulousness that was at Target spring 2010?) & the other 2 were sewn out of cotton print fabric i got last summer at a flea market
these should make great summer dresses & nice beach cover-ups
bonne journee mes amies, a demain !
PS Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there :)
