Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a blessed Easter weekend. David and I took a little road trip to Tulsa, OK to see George Strait in concert with his parents. We had the best time exploring the city, eating delicious food, and shopping around town. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend
Today I’m sharing a dress I made several weeks ago, but just never got around to posting! It is one of my favorites for a few reasons. One, it was so simple to make; and two, it looks ((to me!)) like a store-bought dress. #winning.
So, let me introduce to you my Chambray + Lace Sureau Dress
-I purchased the chambray from Fancy Tiger Crafts in the Fall when I was visiting Denver. I have NO idea what brand it is, but there are small flakes of color in it, which is interesting! The lace is just from Jo-Ann, but I feel as if it did the job well!
-I sewed the same size that I sewed for the Belladone Dress, but this one didn’t fit me quite as well. The bust was a big too big and was gaping a bit. Next time I will sew the darts bigger and I think that will help with the problem.
-For the back, I over laid the chambray with a panel of lace, basted them together around the edges and sewed them into the dress as one piece. It was super easy!
-The front of the dress features a button placket, but I decided to omit the buttons and do another lace overlay. I am SO happy I did this!! The dress itself is pretty simple in construction and details, so adding this pop of lace to the front really tied everything together.
I really love wearing this dress + even paired it with (a friend’s) pair of cowboy boots for the concert this weekend. So Texas 😉
