Your makes: Giselle and Mariska - and a giveaway!
It's been a while since I've posted photos of your makes - which is inexcusable! Let's start with a happy thought: Emily in Bali, wearing a lovely chevron maxi Giselle:
Maxi dresses are SO great for relaxing in lovely locations. I think I would like to go to Bali now. Michelle of Handmade Martini also made a maxi Giselle, in a soft gauze with a self-dyed bottom panel for the skirt:
Michelle did a small bust adjustment similar to Erin of Trumbelina's. (A detailed, diagrammed-out tutorial for how to do this is in the works, along with one for a full bust adjustment, which I hope to have ready sometime next week.) And there's a giveaway up on her blog! The winner will receive one Kate & Rose PDF pattern of her choice - leave a comment to enter on her post to enter, through midnight Friday, June 20th! Chrissy Weeks also made a Giselle maxi:
Based partly on Cathy's feedback when she made this version, I made changes to the Mariska pattern so it is a little bit different now, and better. I'm very grateful to her for this.
