Snap, Crackle, Poppies

This fabric makes me so happy! I wanted to make a garment that showcased as much of the print as possible--one wrap dress, with extra fabulousness please!

Maxi-dresses and I have a love-hate thing going on, but I love a tea length dress. I drafted the skirt pattern without regards to how much fabric there was, and it fit perfectly. Any longer and there wouldn't have been enough. Serendipitous sewing, I suppose.

The bodice is modified from this Burda Style pattern. I left out the front piece, and just did the wrap fronts and back piece, modifying the shoulders for the ties.

Bonus: me smashing a bug on my forehead.
