This email showed up in my mailbox the other day and of course I went to Talbot's site to wallow in the goodness. Three of my favorite dresses from last summer are "The Peyton Dresses" which were inspired by a dress from Talbot's.
Now I'm intrigued by the ponte short sleeve sheath dress pictured below. I know I'm not a pocket girl but this is such a cute, practical dress that I'm thinking I need a couple. I have quite a bit of ponte on hand in several colors ~ including yellow ~ and this would make a great work dress.
The dress appears to be simple but it has such interesting details. The v-neck with the neckline detailing, the pockets with the slot seams, the bold buttons and the cute short sleeves all make it a versatile dress ~ great for work and church. Of course, I will start with my TNT dress pattern, with a few pattern pieces from other garments to get my own version of this dress.
I don't even have to pull fabric from the shelves for this...it's all laying around the sewing cave just waiting to be made into new spring dresses. So when I finish up my Mood garment, I'm going to make a couple of these.
Yellow, emerald, burgundy and pink ponte knits
I've decided to call this summer's sewing "Fun In The Sun Summertime Dressing." I can't wait to add several of these dresses to the collection!
...as always more later!
