New Project: Heidi #2

The front bodice piece of my new Heidi!

I recently cut out and began marking the pieces for my next BurdaStyle Heidi. For this second version, I’m using a Joel Dewberry fabric: Orchid Mulberry. I love the base color–it’s just so yummy. Like jam!

To add a little more pizazz to this version of the dress, I’m considering beading a pickstitch along the pocket edges. Nothing fancy, maybe a small colored wood bead, or plastic/glass seed bead. I don’t want to do too much, which I think would just detract from the beauty of the fabric’s design and the dress’s features.

The front skirt pieces.

I’ll begin sewing it soon. The poly skirt lining still needs cutting out but as that’s one of the last piece attached to the dress, it can wait a little while.
