A happy, bright dress from a vintage pattern
This one was a super simple one that I got to finishing over the weekend, though, from this sweet vintage pattern I've had for ages. May have been my mom's, maybe was just one I inherited with someone's vintage pattern collection over the years. This cute late 70's dress pattern, Simplicity 6899, is one I modified for one of my bridesmaids' dresses (this one) and one I used to replicate a Marc Jacobs dress Zooey Deschannel wore on the cover of Lucky a couple years ago (this dress).
I had access to a bunch of this lovely lightweight bright blue cotton, a woven polka dot with a bit of shimmer woven in. (My mom buys bolts at wholesale prices and sometimes ends up with extras in fabrics I like! Sweet!!) I've wanted to make a dress of it for a while, but hadn't had anything in mind until I put these two together.
Here it is! A happy lightweight cotton.
And, after the most beautiful weekend ever this weekend (clear skies, 70s and 80s, cool mornings and warm afternoons!) I'm optimistic that I'll get to wear it soon. ;)
I also made it to JoAnn's this weekend and bought a couple new dress patterns, which I almost never do, so am excited to try those out soon!
