Maybe it’s because I’ve been stuck in jersey mode for the past few months, but I am loving the lady-like vibes of this dress.
This dress is all about sunny Saturdays, vintage picnic hampers and lazing about in grassy fields. Or maybe it’s all about 60s rooftop cocktail parties. I can’t decide. But I do know I’m pretty smitten with it.
I was lucky enough to make this on Saturday at a lovely sewing bee thrown by the John Lewis’ department store to celebrate their 150 year anniversary. The fabric is a special edition cotton from John Lewis’ 150 year anniversary collection.
It’s purple. And floral. What more could you ask for?
The pattern is Sew Over It’s ultimate shift dress – cut to accommodate little bambino. And I couldn’t help but throw in some pockets, just for good measure. It’s where classy ladies would keep their lipstick.
More on the event and details on some incredibly awesome sewing bloggers coming later in the week. But in the meantime, I’d like to leave you with my new life motto: Life is too short to be a solid colour.
