Oh yeah baby! I sewed for myself again! I made the Staple Dress. I have seen so many wonderful Staple dresses (like here, here and here) that just had to make one. I bought the pattern from Indie Stitches, an Aussie based on-line boutique that offers a great range of indie patterns. For Australian buyers shipping is free - bonus!
OK, back to my dress. I actually made it a few weeks ago when it was still hot, since we are heading into Autumn I didn't want to make a summer dress. My Staple dress is made out of very lightweight denim. It is not one of the suggested fabrics, but I figured it wouldn't look out of place during cooler months. Just imagine it paired up with boots, a cardigan and maybe a scarf.
My bust - waist - hips measurements put me in sizes XS - S - S. Since I am planning on layering the dress over cooler months (and have no idea how to 'marry' two sizes) I made my dress in size S.
I must have got lost in translation at some point and converted inches into centimetres wrong hence ended up with a very wide neckline. Oops!
Please let me introduce my personal stylist to you all. While I was getting ready Little Monkey played with my jewellery box. She fell in love with a pair of earrings she found in there and wanted me to wear them. I bought these earrings from a talented local crafter Melissa. Melissa has so many beautiful things to offer!
Oh I can imagine a few more Staple dresses in my wardrobe in the future! They are so easy to make and so comfy to wear!
