What I'm Wearing | A Happy, Sunny Day Requires Bright and Bold Colors!


Silk Shirt dress - Erica B's - DIY Style!
Yesterday was such a gloriously beautiful day, that it called for a fun, breezy dress for 85 degree weather.

So I pulled out this gorgeous, luxe but casual silk shirt dress that I made last summer.  It's Vogue 8903, and if you fancy shirt dresses as I do, this is one to have in your pattern collection!

I love this dress and I'd forgotten how easily it wears during warm weather.  Crepe de chine is such a great fabric and one of my favorites.

And when sewing with silk, all of the precision cutting, pristine French seams and perfect narrow hems?  Yes, I'm going to get my time and money's worth!
