My nerdlet loves birds, especially flamingos and peacocks. When I saw this fabric, I knew she would love it. I had just received the newest edition of Ottobre, which had this dress. The picture is not that good because the nerdlet was not exactly being cooperative. I barely got her to take off her jacket and she wouldn't let me straighten the dress on her shoulders.
I finished the neckline and sleeves with fold over elastic. She really likes the style and has asked for more. I think she is outgrowing her desire for frilly over-the-top girly dresses and is looking for more comfortable and simple dresses.
