Me-Made-May has really put the pressure on my sewing schedule. This project has been on my to-sew list for a month. Marian Martin 9197 is the pattern that was the foundation of my cherries blouse. While I love the blouse and plan to make more, I am undecided on the dress. Maybe it’s the color, maybe it’s the sweet, calico print, but this very nearly screams “polygamy ranch” to. Maybe this one would work better in a solid color or a print with a more rockabilly print. I’m still looking for the perfect dress that I can make over and over. I’m not sure this is it. I am willing to keep trying, though. The pattern looks really cute with the solid skirt and bolero and plaid bodice, but the bolero would be a winter look.
