I have already sung my love song for this pattern, but it has now conquered the title of my favorite pattern ever.As I said in my previous post, Bleuet is ME in dress form. It perfectly express my style and what I want to convey about me through my clothes. I can wear it during the day to walk my dog and to go grocery shopping, and at night to go out, and feel equally comfortable in it. It's modest, but it doesn't make me feel too covered up, so it's perfect in any situation. It has a high neckline with a collar, buttons and a bow. My idea of perfection.
If I had to wear one dress forever, after this Summer, I am sure it would be Bleuet.
Oh, yes. I could write an epic poem on our love.
As I said before, constructing this dress takes some time and patience, but it's completely worth it. Did I convince you to try it out? The world needs more Bleuets in it!
