Portland, Oregon...






I finally made a little white dress for summer, even though there are only a few more weeks to wear this, that’s OK. There is always vacation and next summer to wear it!
This was from Simplicity 1810 pattern. It was a fast and easy sew and I look forward to wearing this with cute nude or tan shoes and a great necklace and other jewelry.
I like the pleat detail at the shoulder and the built in tie sash which is sewn into the back darts. Cute dress, and I could see this made up in other colors and prints or into the little tunic top view of this pattern and it would be a great, simple style.

    Wow… DO AS THE ROMANS DO. And in this dress! Yup, this dress needs a vacation! I’m just in LOVE with that concept! Also, I have this pattern lying around… definitely inspired to give it another look! Yours is… sigh. So romantic. It deserves to be wined and dined!

      Oooh, I LOVE the sound of that! You are so right: I need to start planning a vacation to Italy right away so that I can wear this dress. Thanks for the visual inspiration Ridoggs!
