Gingham Country

Two gingham dresses just isn't enough, so I made a third! I had originally planned to make a skirt out of this green and white fabric, but I'm glad I decided to go for a dress in the end. Inspired by some eyelet accented dress styles in one of my old Montgomery Ward catalogs, I decided to use the last scraps of the eyelet from the dress I made in spring for the sleeves of this new gingham dress. I do wish I had made the angle where the eyelet meets the gingham sharper, but such is life!

How crazy light has my hair gotten right? It's a very faded "dark warm brown" but looks very light auburn now. It's about time to dye it a different color, a brighter, fun, and less convenient for vintage-looks-but-too-bad color! I have to finish a very involved video project I have been working on first, as I need to keep a consistent hair color for that, but after that's finished I'm going dark raspberry pink! Could be fun, could be unflattering, only time will tell ;)

I'm afraid I haven't much else to say today, I hope you all had a great weekend!

Dress: Made by me
Shoes: Chelsea Crew
Belt: Target
Handbag & Jewelry: Vintage


  1. The eyelet fabric detail is really interesting, sort of like a built-in bolero. You do have quite the gingham dress obsession - no bad thing! Xx

    1. Thank you! It did turn out quite bolero looking :)

  2. I love that green, and it's perfect with the tan-brown of your accessories. Looking forward to the new hair colour! Kx

  3. Oooh, the new hair sounds very exciting!

    Everyone's been rocking some great gingham looks this summer, and it's really made me reappraise it as a fabric/pattern.

    1. Thanks Mim! Gingham is just so summery!

  4. I adore this! Especially the contrasting sleeves!

    Also, your new hair color sounds amazing!


  5. This dress is super, love the fabric contrast. No such thing as too much gingham. Looking forward to seeing the hair colour.
