Summer Dresses!

 

This summer I made three dresses that I am actually wearing all the time.

The first is the Traveler Dress by Lisette.
Sadly, this pattern has been discontinued, but you may be able to find some online somewhere.
If not, the Frances Dress from Green Bee designs is similar.
I used Robert Kaufman faux patchwork chambray  for mine.

The second is the Chambray Dress from Handmade Style by Anna Graham.  This was so fast and easy to put together!  I highly recommend this pattern.  I used Robert Kaufman’s Chambray Dobbies in Squares.  It drapes so nicely and has a little bit of sheen to it.  I think this dress can be dressy or casual, depending on how you style it.  It would work for fall as well if you just throw on some boots, a pretty scarf and a cardi.

Next up is The Amelia Dress by Green Bee Designs.  This dress is cut completely on the bias.  The fabric I chose is Anna Maria Horner’s Loominous Seedlings.  The fabric is gorgeous and soft and wonderful.  However, it frays and was very hard to work with on the bias.  I almost quit several times trying to match up the stripes, too!    I also put in an invisible zipper which for some reason pooched out in the back so much I looked like I had a hump!  I realized I didn’t need the zipper to get in and out of the dress so I took it out and now it’s fine.  All that said,  I love the way it came out, but it was rough going.  PHEW!
