The right pattern with the right fabric
Sherri of Thread Riding Hood made a perfect travelling day dress out of the striking African Palm Indigo fabric and the April Rhodes Staple Dress pattern. She chose for colour, drape and density of pattern and it all came together beautifully.
Sherri made the pattern her own by modifying the pattern to create a new hemline that adds to the easy going elegance of her look. If you're not confident revising patterns (I am definitely not!), check out her blog for a clear and easy to follow tutorial and creating this shirt tale effect. It takes the dress in another direction.
She's also modelling it in Quebec City. It's nice to have a dramatic historical backdrop isn't it?
