I have a girlie who has outgrown much of her summer wardrobe. We actually went shopping a few weeks ago to find some staples, as in shorts and a few shirts, but came home mostly empty-handed….because either the waists fit and they were too shorty-mc-shorty or the length fit but she cant keep them up.
Soooo….I guess that means I need to get busy and sew up a few things for summer.
This dress I actually sewed up a couple of months ago, and found again when unpacking summer things. So, we have one summer dress! (It’s a start….)
I do know that it was a vintage pattern but I am not finding it at the moment (sorry, I will keep looking as I unpack the sewing room) but I need to find it because it fits like a glove. I want to make a couple more like it.
The fabrics are a mustard linen blend from Jo-Ann Fabric and the skirt fabric is from Birch fabrics from their Ipanema line. Both are lightweight and will be great for hot summer weather.
The dress itself was a simple bodice with a closure that is an invisible side zipper that is put in under the armhole. Then the skirt itself is a basic circle skirt but it was cut into 6 pieces to match the darts (I love how vintage patterns have everything match perfectly—-it makes my Virgo heart happy ;))
One summer dress down and a couple more to go….but next on the list are some skirts and shorts!
PS We have had quite a few comments and emails about where our “subscribe by email” button went…and we are happy to tell you that it is BACK in the SIDEBAR. So, sign up if you want to subscribe and get our posts by email everyday.
What a lovely find… I hope you find the pattern so you can make some more and also (more selfishly) so you can let us know which pattern it is so that I can make some for my daughter 🙂
I really love the shape of that dress! It’s beautiful. =)
