Yesterday I wrote about my hand embroidered Frida dress, and today I am sharing another Frida dress I made during the pattern test. I used a beautiful cotton lawn fabric from Girl Charlee for this dress. The fabric has the perfect drape for the Frida.
For this dress, I decided to use the long bell sleeves that gather at the wrist. Since I am shorter than the drafted height, I removed 1.5″ from the sleeve length.
I also removed 3″ from the hem, so that the dress would hit above my knee.
Side seam pockets are another option on this dress, and of course I had to make them.
The back of the dress has a rouleau loop and button closure, and I used a beautiful wooden button for mine.
I love the look of the Frida with some leggings and boots, and I know I will be wearing this outfit a lot this Fall.
Modifications: I am 5’1″ so I shortened the sleeves 1.5″ and the hem by 3″.
Recommendations: You can see my hand embroidered Frida dress here.
