Happy Wednesday! I'm excited to be today's stop for The Staple Dress Blog Hop! I've talked about The Staple Dress Pattern by April Rhodes quite a bit on this blog, and I'm happy to be a part of the celebration for the release of the print version!
It's no secret that I love this pattern! I knew I wanted to make an extra special version for the hop. I picked up some lawn from The Sewcial Lounge shortly after the pattern was released and had been saving it for a special occasion. This is the fourth dress I've made using the pattern and it might just be my favorite! You can find my past dresses here, and here.
True to myself, I of course procrastinated in a major way and didn't sew up this dress until Monday. Thankfully it comes together super quickly and easily! I thought things would be foiled by today's rainy weather, but I had a lot of fun playing in the rain to get these shots!
I was reminded that sometimes when things don't work out the way you think they should, there is an opportunity hiding to do something out of the box. Is this what I had in mind taking photos the day before? Not exactly! But thank goodness, because my usual garment photos are a bit boring! Also, good thing my umbrella matched my outfit!
This dress is so wearable, even I will be finding excuses to wear it! And I'm not much of a dress-wearing girl. I'm barely a skirt-wearing girl!
You can find the PDF version of The Staple Dress here, and the print version here. April also has a list of stockists here.
Would you like to win a copy of the printed pattern? It's totally gorgeous!
