Une Robe Et Un Voyage



I am going on a trip next week and I needed a new dress to take, something that would look a bit nicer than pants to wear to museums, shopping and out to eat. I wanted it to be in a wrinkle free, light weight fabric, comfortable to wear, and in a style that was easy to make          





                                     I found this jersey print....perfect! I loved the design, weight, and color.


I had this classic Vogue dress pattern, I decided to make version C, I already have the sleeveless V-necked version in black knit to take.



...and, I  have this cute little necklace I bought from a shop on Etsy



Voila! Exactly what I wanted.






Where am I going you might ask. I will give you a few hints: it is a place with lots of museums, good food and wine, fashion, lots of interesting history and tons of charm...oh, it is also known for it's tower. Have you guessed...

                                            ...Je vais en France bien sûr, avec ma petite-fille!

                         I am going to France of course, with my granddaughter! We are both very excited.

  1. I love this post! You are a living doll who knows how to bring into existence that of which she dreams rather than waiting for it to pop out of nowhere.

    Really enjoyed the quirky loveliness of this read. :)
