Papercut Ashling Dress

Hello! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I feel like that’s how my last few posts have gone. I’ve been terrible about posting these past few years but I’m hoping to be better about it! Anyway, here’s one of my most recent makes- a Papercut Ashling dress. I loved this pattern as soon as I saw it.

It’s no secret that I love ruffles and this one has the option for three! Waist, collar and sleeve cuffs. I ended up just doing to the waist although I had planned on the sleeve cuffs. I ran out of fabric. 

I was between sizes and should have sized down. When I first tried it on, I was disappointed. I took the shoulders in a little and that helped. I wish I had shortened the bodice an inch or two but it would have been too much of a headache to unpick once I realized. I am happy with how it turned out, though. It’ll be an easy dress to just throw on with some flats and feel put together. 

This lovely rayon is from Art Gallery. It’s called Intrinsic Deep. I love all the colors in the design. I had a hard time deciding what color buttons I wanted to use but I ended up on these pink vintage buttons I had in my stash.

I hope to make another in a cotton one day. The tan gingham one on the Papercut site is so perfect! There’s also an option to just make a top which would also be nice. My spring/ summer sewing plans are out of control. I want to make all the things! I just finished a Friday Pattern Co Davenport dress so I’ll be back to share that soon and maybe some of my future sewing plans.

Thanks for reading!
