I know. A Boring Dress. Really?
Because it is Fast to Whip Out, Easy to Wear, Looks Good on Everyone, and Cheap to Make.
Sew It. Slip It On. Off to Work. Whoosh.
A 30-Minute Project.
The Trick is the Fabric. Good Quality Linen. Bought at Joann’s On Sale.
Quality Dressmaker Details that are Easy to Do.
Make this Number look Not-Hand-Made. That’s My Quest.
The Pattern is Ancient, but Still Available Everywhere. Simplicity 8565.
I’ve had the pattern forever but was afraid to make because I thought it was too difficult for my limited sewing skills.
I was wrong. Didn’t Need the Handy Call-for-Help Line.
V-Neck. Slight Flare. Front and Back 2 Pieces. No Zipper. Really, really Easy.
French Seams to hide all the raggedy edges.
But No Sleeves. The Sleeves looked Dumpy and so 1980’s.
Improvise. Finish the Arm Holes and Go.
Simple. Classic. Ralph Lauren-ish.
In a Summer Classic Linen. A little bit of Rumple is Good.
But Oh, Yes, the Boring Part…How to Jazz Up this Oatmeal Dress…
Jewelry Works. Shells are Fun.
Fabric in a Dramatic Color…Aquamarine.
Or what about on Bare Skin wearing a Glittery Summer Tan?
Love this Sunscreen. 🙂
Now we’re talking.
Sorry. No time for a Photo…Off to Work…in My Oatmeal Creation.
Catch You on the Flip Side. 🙂
Summer Magic that will slip into Fall.
