The Perfect Summer Dress


Add a cap sleeve and this is my ideal summer dress. Boden is always right on the money with their clothes, but especially with their dresses! Sadly, even on sale at $118 it  is outside my dress budget. So as anyone with a budget will tell you, you either learn to do without or you make it on your own.

I recently discovered a new to me online fabric source—Fashion Fabrics Club and quickly and deeply fell in love with this blue and white stripe fabric (and loads of other fabrics that were begging me to take them in and give them a purpose in life). This stripe screams summertime, with its colors and the fact that it is lightweight. Not to mention, those prices! I grabbed it while on sale at $3.95/yard. I’ll let you know how the quality is once it arrives—I ordered it on Friday and have been checking the mail every minute since.

So with the inspiration and the fabric on the way, I’m only wishing I could have it ready for the 4th of July! But I do have other fun plans for that day.
