First of all, thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post - my Sailboat Anna dress. I think it's my favourite Anna to date, and I'm having to stop myself wearing it every day!
I definitely need some more summery dresses that are suitable for work, but I've hit a spot of indecision when it comes to deciding on a pattern for the next one (or two)!
I have several pieces of fabric in my stash that need making up as summer dresses, one being this fabulous vintage Paris map cotton. I think this is just about work-appropriate!
The other is a black and grey floral print, which is definitely work-appropriate.
My indecision is over which pattern (or patterns) to use. I've found a couple of new to me pattern companies that each have a cute dress pdf pattern;
Sinbad and Sailor's Hepworth dress
I've seen some lovely versions of this, most notably Winnie's. It looks like it comes up pretty short, so would need lengthening a bit for me, and the neckline looks a little high, but that's easily altered. There are some good reviews of this one.
I was almost set on the Hepworth, then I found the Tanja dress by Schnittchen Sewing Patterns. No, I'd never heard of them either!
I love the tulip skirt, the neckline and the cap sleeves. I'm slightly worried about how the skirt shape would suit me, and also hesitant about the fact that hardly anyone appears to have made this (or made it and blogged about it anyway!).
What would you make with these fabrics? Either of these patterns, or something else entirely?
