Since my mendocino sundress is practically the same pattern as the one from Weekend Sewing (also by Heather Ross) that I made for Eloise, I thought we should take some pictures together. So here they are. My dress looks country, as usual. Why does everything I sew look like it should be worn by Laura Ingalls Wilder? I thought using a batik print fabric could not possibly result in this, but it did. I might shorten it to just above the knee. But I've seen lots of versions online of this longer hemline where it looked perfectly normal. Oh well. i guess I'm a country girl and I should just accept it.
