Erin McKean's book The Hundred Dresses is a field guide to frocks identifying every iconic dress from The Austen to The Xena. We thought it would be great to make patterns for our own version of some of these frocks. Possibly not The J-Lo or The Cupcake Bride but first up, we're tackling The Bouquet - a dress that "is meant to call to mind the traditional association of women with flowers: whether you are a shrinking violet, an exotic orchid, a full-blown rose, or as fresh as a daisy." "It's the expanse of surface area given over to flowers that defines a Bouquet dress - one or two blossoms do not a Bouquet dress make." The Hundred Dresses Download a Daisy Dress pattern, find some flower festooned fabric and stitch your own icon! We've used the fastest and simplest sewing techniques we know for a little instant gratification! Clothesline hopes to produce a series of 10 iconic dress patterns.

My neighbour told me that back in the 70's she would go shopping for a pattern and fabric on Saturday morning, sew it up in the afternoon and wear it out that night. We love that idea! A search for the simplest, speediest patterns to sew proved unfruitful, so I spent a few years at college to learn to make my own. Please follow my progress at - I'd love to hear from you!
