Ishi Dress

The lovely An from Straight Grain just came out with her newest pattern, the Ishi dress. Because it is a great design and because she is having a contest with some amazing prizes, I decided to make my own Ishi.

I wanted to model it after this crazy stripe dress I drafted for Drew a couple years ago, which still gets worn all the time.

All I needed to do was make a few extra cuts in the Ishi pattern and cut out my stripes in the different directions. These seersucker stripes are a lot more subtle then the neon orange I used in Drew's dress, but if you look closely you can see all the different stripey directions.

I love the color green on my little redhead.

Straight Grain patterns are meticulous and so nice to sew up. Thanks for checking out my stripey Ishi!

  1. Love the effect of stripes in various directions :) And yes, this is such a great colour for strawberry haired little people :)
