A preppy, happy, springy dress!!
It has been off and on sunny this week, but I was too afraid of it passing to start any nice-weather projects. But yesterday, I made this dress, which I think works for early spring (if I'm staying indoors) as well as spring and summer!
I was fantasizing about a 50's-inspired shirtdress, but cute and well-fitted. Here are some of my inspirations...
I added simple white cotton lace, the cheap an ubiquitous stuff, on the bottom.
I also played around with where to put the tie/bow of the sash... where do you think it should go?
Just to be funky, I used four mismatch vintage buttons for the closure, and white ric rac at the neck/collar seam!
I was afraid, after I cut it out and started sewing, of course, that the blue would make it look like a nurse's uniform!! But I hope the ric rac and funky buttons make it less uniform-ey...
Unfortunately, it is rainy today, so I will be wearing jeans and long sleeves!
