Flowers and flutters, oh my!

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to test the new Coffee and Thread pattern, the Polina dress.

I have noticed recently that I'm beginning to sew with more and more flowery prints.  This dress was perfect for showing off this lovely dress.

There's a few options with this pattern.  This is the gathered skirt and the circular frills.  I'm not going to lie, those frills were not easy to sew.  It was worth the effort though as they look very sweet.

Olga has worked very hard on this pattern, constantly improving every little thing.  This was one of the final versions and it looks great.  I made this size 4 with the lined bodice.  Other than the fiddly frills it all came together beautifully.

Now prepare for picture overload.

I did warn you!


  1. This dress is just so adorable on her. Love it!

  2. If you have a minute, I’d really appreciate it if you took a look at Emily’s Virtual Rocket. This is a serious newsblog which has been taken from e-newspapers and e-magazines from around the world, with an emphasis on transgender issues. Also, with his election, I look for articles which critique Donald Trump.
