My husband and I just celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary this past month. It was the same day as Caspian's birthday party. Sadly my husband had to work that day (and almost every Saturday) so we were not able to go out this year but oh what a lovely surprise he had for me! He bought me some of Robert Kauffman's interweave chambray in Strawberry! What a lucky lady I am! I knew it would be perfect for Deer and Doe's Aubepine dress pattern.
I did have to add a FBA to this dress for a great fitting bust so not only is this dress beautiful it's super comfortable too! I lined the dress with the same fabric as the outer side for a lovely feel inside and out. The dress has the perfect length too, not too long or too short. I finished the casing with 1/8" elastic for ease of dressing and added a vintage yellow velvet ribbon through the button holes. (The ribbon was given to me from my grandmother that was her mother's. It makes this dress all more special to me.) I think this dress will work very well in early fall with some dark leggings paired with some brown boots. With the cool weather we have been having lately it just might be here early this year.
Many thanks to Nicole and her girls for introducing me to Deer and Doe patterns!!
