Thanks so much for offering up your color scheme thoughts on my gingham/red dress, Simplicity 3016.
To recap I’m making the dress below with a red bodice, red and white gingham skirt and a white cummerbund. And with your input I added in some gingham piping on the bodice, just last night.
In fact, I got so wrapped up in sewing the bodice last night that I forgot to write my blog post.
I was debating making the jacket that coincided with S3016, but Annabellebumps came to my rescue with the sweet little bolero pattern from S1655.
The winning color combination for the jacket was a red main color, accented with gingham. The votes were really quite close for the bodice piping and for the bolero color combination. But I was happy to see that you all wanted the same accents of gingham on everything (bodice and bolero) to tie in with the skirt.
Thanks again so much for offering up your opinions. I don’t think I could have decided on it without your help! :)
Gacks! This will be darling! Oh gosh, I can’t wait to see the finished version. And what a perfect dress fit for a sweet summer picnic. Yay!
Heh Thanks so much Sunni! :)
Oh, I love that bolero pattern! Too cute!
Isn’t it sweet!
Yay, Gingham piping won! ;-)
Yep. Before offering up the voting to everyone I was leaning towards white. I did a bit last night and the gingham looks pretty great against the red bodice.
