On Sunday I started a second Emery dress, and I finished it up this afternoon. This version is the same as my first one. The only change I made was to omit the pockets, because I don't really use them. This dress is all about the fabric.
From a distance it looks like a mostly red dress with some patterning.
When you get closer, you realize that the rectangles are tiki heads:
Get even closer and you can see that the print features wood grain on the tiki heads:
And if you really inspect the design, you'll see that some of the tiki heads are winking!!
Gah!! How cute is that? Within the space of a week and a half, I spied this Michael Miller Tiki Winki fabric online, bought it, received it, prewashed it, cut it out and sewed up this dress. Now I just need the weather to warm back up so I can wear it!
