Several weeks ago we had a little dress-photography-outing, so I have been deeply enjoying being able to have photos ready for posting each week!
This dress of my mom's is another top favorite of mine. It is simply gorgeous, and the fabric is perfect for summer!
As with her rose chintz dress, she used Simplicity 3847 for the bodice, adding tucks front and back for a more fitted style. The skirt is from Simplicity 3688.
I just love the fabric! I have a definite weakness for tiny florals, and this is no exception.
The train station in town has ended up being an ideal backdrop for photos! The back yard can get a little monotonous at times, so it's nice to have a little change of scenery.
My mom happened to have these >gorgeous< buttons in her stash (oh, to have such a button stash!), and they were the perfect match for her fabric. This jelly-red buckle was the perfect accent!
The skirt of the dress is lined, which really adds comfort and wonderful body.
And lastly, a photo from one of our antiquing forays! That particular town had a lovely courthouse, which just happened to be decked out in patriotic decor, so it made for some lovely pictures.
Since the new Vintage Vogue patterns for fall came out, I've been getting the itch to start planning for a fall wardrobe. I can't wait to get to the fabric store! :) Wool dresses, wool skirts, and some lovely 3/4 sleeve blouses are on the sewing itinerary.
Thank you all for your lovely and encouraging comments on last week's post! You're all so sweet, as always, and I appreciate every one of you. :)
