As I've mentioned before, I've been sewing as if my sewing machine has only a few weeks to live (if my Singer's bucket list included exposed zippers, chiffon and buttonholes, she'd be ready to peacefully leave this world). I'm pumping out at a garment every week or so. And by garment, I mean dress, because that is apparently the only thing I am interested in making. I've always been a dress girl. Long before I started sewing I had about 50 bright, thrifted dresses I more or less lived in. I'm so insanely finicky about the fit of skirts, and really find separate dressing much harder than throwing on one thing that needs nothing but a necklace and/or belt to be on your way.
I snagged the pattern and vintage floral cotton from that big Craigslist haul from a few months back. I fell in love with this pattern and thought it would make the perfect summer dress:
Right?! How great is that little peplum top? I'll definitely using this pattern again. Maybe even get around to doing it in a maxi....
Also, big thanks to Brooklyn for this conveniently matchy graffiti.
