Un petit quelque chose ~

I wanted a new summer dress, something soft, comfortable and maybe a little elegant. Lately most of the dresses I have made have been out of cotton knits with little sewing required...this time I wanted a real dress, with fitted darts and even a zipper.  I pulled out this vintage Vogue pattern...

...then I shopped my stash of fabric and I found this lovely piece of rayon, very soft with a fluid hand ~ perfect.

 I had the pattern, the fabric, and even this necklace.

Time to get to work...


Now I have my new dress, and I love it. It is just what I wanted.

I just might change the pattern a bit so it has a scoop neck, maybe add short sleeves, and make another just can't have too many dresses.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you have a lovely day.
