Sunset Stripes Dress

I made this dress for the Fall for Cotton sewalong challenge. It’s a mash-up of Vintage Vogue 8789 and Sewaholic’s Cambie dress patterns. I modeled it after a vintage striped dress I saw online and fell in love with. It’s made with stripe cotton by Kaffe Fasset. More photos and info available here on my blog, Mint Green Sewing Machine

    This looks lovely on you! I really like the angling of the stripes on the bodice and the chevron pocket detail – can’t quite make out what you did, but it is great! Kaffe Fassett stripes are to-die-for!
