There is probably an argument that 3 separate versions of a very specific style of dress might be a bit much, but you won’t be finding that argument here. This is my third (and likely, not last) version of the Vogue 9253 pattern, a kimono-inspired deep V-neck dress – this is time in a beautiful, sage green , floral crepe!
To be quite honest, I’ve never been a huge St. Patty’s Day reveler. The extent of my childhood memories of this holiday include being at the zoo one year, hoping to goodness I wouldn’t get pinched by a stranger for not wearing enough green. In recent years, I’ve joined the crowds to enjoy the local St. Patrick’s Day Parade and giggled at the availability of anything and everything dyed a lovely shade of green! However, opportunities to expand my wardrobe are always welcome, and for this reason I love St. Patrick’s Day lately – an excuse to add a little green into my wardrobe! Check out this pretty green BHL Flora dress!
It is Kalle month here in the Sew My Style Community! How are you coming along with yours? Whether you’re still looking for some direction or elbow deep in your project, you’ve got plenty of resources! If you missed it, I recently did a post with some fabric and styling inspiration! Another great place to look for ideas is by using the hashtag #KalleShirtDress on Instagram. This is a VERY popular make amongst sewists, you could scroll for days gathering great ideas! Today, though – I’m here to show you all my finished Kalle!
Can you believe that it’s already March, which means it is almost St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of the upcoming green-clad holiday, I decided to blog one of my favorite dresses from summer 2017 – which just so happens to be one of the few green items in my closet! I love the color green, and I’ve always liked the way it looks with my skin tone, but as I look through my me-made wardrobe it seems that it just hasn’t been a color I’ve been extremely drawn to when purchasing fabric. This March, I think I’ll focus on changing that!
