We are going on a little escape down to the coast in a fortnight and I took it as an excuse to make a new sun dress. It is currently still so 'warm' here that we need the fire each night to stay warm so I may be stretching things :-).
I wanted to try some pintucks after I found some adorable dresses on pintrest. I didn't realise how long it takes to make pintucks, if I thought about it I would have realised but I just launched into my project without any planning. But I like how they give you a tighter bodice and more flair for the skirt.
Here is the simple pintucked bodice.
My method was: Get fabric, pintuck it, make a tube, cut armholes, bind, hem, make button holes, done.
I think it only took around an hour to make after I finally finished the pin tucks.
