Inspiration, Shoptalk....

Today's inspiration is from Red Valentino:

RED Valentino Ruffle-Bottom Gingham Dress

This is the Ruffled-Bottom Gingham Dress. Very simple. Very feminine. Details - Sleeveless dress in a blue and white gingham fabric with a scoop neckline, pencil skirt, with a flared ruffle. Fabric is a cotton/spandex blend. Price tag: $695.00

Search details: at the Neiman Marcus search for "Ruffle-Bottom Gingham Dress" to see the details.

This dress could be worn to work with a cardigan or jacket and then out to dinner with a change of accessories.

For a similar look, try the slip pattern (upper right-hand corner in about picture) from the Roundabout Dress pattern by Anna Maria Horner.  Add a double-layer ruffle on the bottom.  This pattern is cut on the bias so you would not be able to get the straight of grain look in the original. 

Quick gift idea -

The Fun & Flirty coin purse  pattern by This & That.

Happy Stitching!
