04 Jul Garment No 19
I’ve gone Preppy this Fourth of July.
Using the same pattern as my last dress, McCalls 2401, I went for a different look by sewing the pattern in an embroidered seersucker rather than silk 🙂
This time I lined the dress with a lightweight batiste, perfect for hot humid weather.
Maybe I look like I belong in Maine eating seafood rather than South Carolina eating bar-b-que,
but I couldn’t resist the cute fabric at Five Eighth Seams in Charleston, SC last summer! This small independent fabric store is worth the visit in case you’re in the area. In addition to a nice selection of diverse fabric (most of which is casual), the store carries a large selection of Indie Patterns and books generally seen only online.
I’m keeping this post short intentionally since I just wrote about the pattern, but wanted to share my latest make with you.
Best wishes to American Goodbye Valentino readers for a safe and fun-filled Fourth of July, and Happy Monday to all international readers 🙂
