pinstriped chambray dress

Louisville, Kent...






This is my “signature style” entry for the last challenge of the online sewing competition Project Sewn. I made a gray masculine fabric look pretty adorable (if I say so myself) by turning it into a princess seam dress with interesting stripe detailing and a quarter-circle skirt. The dress bodice is Vogue 8665, with lowered neckline in front and back.

See more photos and details on my blog. Thanks for reading!

Material Notes

Black and white chambray with white pinstripes. Regular zipper.

    This is really cute! I love what you did with the placement of the stripes on the dress (and the addition of the colorful belt!) It makes it fun but still professional! :-)

    I love what you’ve done with the stripes. It makes the dress more eye catching and it’s lovely on you x

    This is a beautiful dress. The stripes (perfectly placed of course) add just the right touch.
