mystery dress for Lucy

I fell for a dress I saw on Fifi Lapin's blog, second photo down in this post. As always, I made Lucy a version of it, rather than one for me, in a polka dot cotton.

I can't seem to find who made the original dress though, can anyone help?

It was bit cold the day I took these photos, and Lucy's expression was the pick of the bunch. Don't you worry though, she is very happy with the dress. When she doesn't like something I've made (and usually because I haven't made it in pink), she just looks at me and says nothing. Or she'll tell me she'll wear it tomorrow.

  1. Oh Catherine! You made a version of that awesome dress for Lucy. I love it. I particularly like how it does up with that little red (heart-shaped?) button. Are you going to make one for yourself? I would absolutely wear that dress in that fabric.

    I can't help with who made the original dress, though not for lack of trying.

    Lucy pulls the best facial expressions. She seems like a real character.

  2. The original is such a great dress, and I would love to make my own one in navy. And yes, Lucy chose a red glass heart button. We'll see if it survives a machine wash!

  4. I would love to see photos of yours if you end up making one.

    Ooh a glass button - I hope you have some spares!

  5. I have been for some time (read: years) wanting to sew a similar dress for myself. The first time I saw this dress is when that dress was worn by Carrie Bradshaw in a Sex and the City episode. The dress is in fuschia and the skirt is tulip-shaped. I realize I am not of a help with the designer name but if you happened to watch that very episode (of which I don't remember, sorry again), you could start from there. :D

  6. Stefani, I think I know which one you are referring to, was it in the first SATC movie when she phones Samantha? If it was from an earlier episode then maybe I don't know each episode word for word like I thought!

    And yes I have six spare glass buttons, enough for six washes....(though I sincererly hope not).

  9. Thankyou Grace! I have to say the model/photograph in Fifi Lapin's blog does the dress a lot more justice than the stock shots.

  12. Grace - not sure if you'll read this comment but this is the dress I think you are referring to, and one which really stood out for me at the time too. I remembered the back being cut-out but until seeing these photos I had no idea it was so similar.
