“Sweet CL” has finally made an appearance for this season of PR&P!! Mind you….it was for the last challenge of the season….and it didn’t necessarily ‘match’ sister’s signature style. Still, similarities can be seen throughout the two creations….
FRANCES SUZANNE’S SIGNATURE STYLE: TAKE TWO…..
Solid colors, piping, a vintage flair, collars, pleats, tucks, hand embroidery….
sometimes all of these characteristics, sometimes just a few.
No collar on this creation, nor do we believe straight stitching would qualify as
‘hand embroidery’…..Nahhhh, probably not!
Still, many ‘Signature Style’ components are evident in this little number….
so we decided it would indeed count as our “Signature Style”, take two.
We began with the Children’s Corner, Lucy and modified it – splitting the dress into a yoke and skirt section, as well as creating an inverted pleat of coordinating fabric underneath the main garment.
Unbeknownst to us, it had more of a ‘vintage flair’ than originally intended.
Check out the length of that dress….
Let’s just say, brown leggings are on our ‘to-do list’ in the very, very near future!
Hindsight tells us we should have piped around the yoke’s entirety.
Still, the vibrant red contrasted nicely against the gold.
We added some straight stitching of red DMC along the inverted pleat…
adding another dimension to the dress.
We must say, someone seems pretty pleased with her new dress….
it’s been a long time in coming!!
And with that, another season of PR&P is in the books,
