Gingham double gauze dress

Image

Last sunday I found a very nice mans scarf at the flea market. It immediately jumped at my eyes, I just had to buy it. I knew from the first minute what I wanna do with it. Back home, I started sewing. The dress, which inspired me is sewn by Tasha from Glitter and Wit. I used my own pattern for the bodice. I`ve allready used it here. The skirt is a rectangle, I used the whole rest of the scarf, then I gathered the waistline.

The fabric is delicious! It`s a double gauze gingham, it`s so soft! I added some self made piping. I like the glamour it adds to the dress.

For the closure I attached some vintage sewing snaps. I sewed them on the lower flap, so they`re not visible from the outside. I love to shop at flea markets and secondhand shops, for vintage sewing stuff. You got special things, you would`t find anywhere else. And at least, you don`t pay much for it. I treasure such goodies!

The gorgeous hoodscarf, is 100% Kashmir, it`s the softest you can imagine. We received it as a gift from a good Nepali Friend. Thanks again! It`s really something special!

The trolley was mine when I was in her age, my mum kept it for me. Isn`t it darling?

I`m trilled, how it turned out. It`s totally my style. Sweet, but not just sweet. You know what I mean?
