Upton dress

Besides on the Vivie, I also did a re-test for the Upton from Blaverry. The Upton is a jersey dress with a color blocked front and a back pleat on the back. Both the split front and back pleated back are perfect to experiment with different fabrics. Due to the pleat the dress is very roomy and has a high playability and the dress sews up very quick.

I bought the main fabric over a year ago at Stoffenelf. It was in the period that I totally went for animal photo prints. I had stayed away from them for a while, but then finally did fall head over heals. As can be expected, I kind of jumped on the next fabric trend, and this cute fabric just stayed on my pile. I think the colors are perfect for fall, and I really love how it looks with the mustard yellow.

She wore the dress to a baptism and we made pictures in front of the church, and my youngest photo bombed the shoot a bit. Seeing all of us where dressed well, we even made group picture to replace the one on my husband's desk at work. In the current one, our youngest was just born, so we really needed a new one. This is not the picture that will decorate his desk, but the one that shows off the Upton dress best.

I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
