This has got to be my favorite novelty print dress! It's so cute and girly!
This fabric is a great novelty quilting cotton find. I normally don't like sewing with quilting cottons but the weight and drape really lend this fabric to the crisp lines of this shirtwaist dress.
And how could I possibly say no to 50s/60s children's pattern illustrations with line drawings of the dresses in the background?
Today, I wore my waist cincher (since I also wanted to wear my new stockings) and it reminded me of how different I feel when wearing all of the proper underpinnings.
New seamed stockings! They are soooooo much more comfortable than the other kind I was wearing! Definitely worth the extra money. Now I just need to get a garter belt for when I don't want to wear the waist cincher.
The weather around here has been unseasonably cool, which is awesome because it feels like early fall rather than icky, sticky August.
Plus it's given me a serious case of good hair days!
Speaking of hair, I got mine chopped last week. It just was at an awkward length in the back and getting dangerously close to ponytail territory. So off it went into a chin length bob.
Are you hanging on to the end of summer or ready for fall already?
