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!
