The sun has been shining in Seattle and I am dreaming of making a new spring dress! We have so many wonderful new fabrics coming into the shop in sweet prints, cool near-solid textures, and fun colors that it is hard to resist buying them all.
Adding in all the lovely new dress patterns that have been released makes the temptation even greater. There are lots of fabulous styles to explore: vintage-inspired, easy shifts, fit-and-flare, shirt-waist, classic sheaths…and the list goes on!
To celebrate the new season (plus fabrics and patterns), we’ve made up a couple dresses to share.
We made it up in a sweet cotton lawn print and added a vintage glass buckle for the perfect finish.
Our second dress is a new pattern from McCall’s. It has a great casual feel to it: an easy fit bodice with button details and dolman sleeves, plus a tiered skirt for a little fun.
We made this pattern up in a classic polka-dotted silk crepep-de-chine, for a touch of elegance.
Pairing a simple print with these fun style lines just makes this dress sing.
Inspired by all the cool fabrics coming into our shop and all the beautiful options on the runway and in stores, I have put together several collections of spring dress style:
