Inspiration and Shop Talk

It is officially spring and we are having another beautiful day! Today's inspiration reflects the high wave going here:

This is the Sonja Printed Dress by Kate Spade New York. Isn't it a lovely shade of blue? It is a cotton/lycra crepe fabric. The dress has a fitted bodice with a boatneck and scoop back, a knee-length a-line pleated skirt, and a hidden zipper. Price tag: $378.00. Go to Neiman Marcus search for the dress name and zoom in to the see the details.

You can get a similar look with this:

This is the Montique Dress pattern by Serendipity Studios. This pattern has instructions for 6 variations. It has a raised waistline instead of the fitted bodice to the waist but you have the neckline and an a-line skirt. 

Sewing for the children?  Don't forget to check the patterns for girls and boys!  There is cargo shorts for the boys; dresses, skirts, tops, and bottoms for the girls.
Happy Sewing!
