Violette Fields Alba

I gave you a preview of this dress in my Small Town Summertime Sewing post but it totally deserves it’s own glorious post!

The Alba Dress by Violette Fields Threads  has been on this girl’s wish list since little sister got hers last summer.

The fun, wide collar is such a stunning feature and sets this dress a part.

I used this gorgeous Michael Miller Eyelet  on sale at Peek-A-Boo Fabric shop lined in matching cotton from my local quilt shop. (I hit up FIVE fabric stores to find just the right match!)

I used a Liberty covered button I’ve been saving forever.  It has been waiting patiently for this dress!

Since I fully lined the whole garment, I used clean finishes and french seams when needed.  I’m super proud of the improvements I’ve made between little sisters dress last year.  Revisiting this pattern made me realize how much I’ve learned and how my skills have grown tremendously in a year.  It’s a great fitting dress that she’ll wear over and over again.

I’d say she likes it 😉

  1. I love this so much!! The liberty button is perfect!! I’ve only made two vft patterns but didn’t love them because the front and back bodices were the same and the sizing was off on the other but this one is very tempting.
