Chambray Library Dress

I'm calling this my copycat dress.  After seeing some lovely versions of this pattern sewn in a chambray type fabric I decided to sew one up as well.

This is the same fabric I'd used for my Mara dress and I still love it.  It's that nice balance between grey and blue and I reckon I would buy the whole roll if money was no object.  The waistband is from a fat quarter I'd bought at a quilt show.  It was a bit of happy accident that I put these two together once when sorting through my stash and I knew straight away it would work.

This time I didn't make it with the collar as I wanted it to be a more everyday kind of dress, but now I've finished I think the collar would have looked nice.  Down the back I used my usual snaps and used grey and red that sort of matched the waistband.

Not much more to say this time that I didn't say before.  I think there won't be a time when Freya doesn't have one of these dresses in her size.


  1. It's beautiful - classic and perfect. Love this dress in chambray!

  2. The (relatively) plain chambray work very nice with those colorful triangles.

  3. i love the triangle waistband. gorgeous dress!!

  4. Thanks! You really can't go wrong with a nice chambray I reckon :)
