"Chambrilliant Summer Frock!"

For this dress I used vintage simplicity dress pattern 8068. Yes,another fabulous ebay find! The project called for ties at the shoulders but I made a tie for a bow On the bodice instead. I saw a dress in Lucky magazine and it was $220 by Quail! Fortunately, for me Chambray was on sale at Hancocks! I think all in all I spent about $15 total! Another perfect Outfit for exploring Our new surroundings here in Charleston sc! I think this dress can easily transcend the seasons! I cant wait to pair it with boots in the fall!

    A) I am having a love affair with chambray—it is so perfect. B) I have been searching for a pattern just like this for some vintage material I’ve been hanging on to.

    Super cute dress.

    This is adorable! I’ve been a little intimidated to try a vintage pattern, but after seeing this cute piece, I think I’ll have to give it a try!
