One Last Summer Dress

I've been analysing the Autumn/Winter collections this week - lots of velvet, tweed, and gorgeous rich colours.  However, it's not Autumn yet!  So, I thought I'd feature one last summer dress.  :-)  This time, it's Vogue 9100.

Here's the images that inspired this outfit:

Vogue 9100 is a great summer dress pattern.  It's sleeveless and has a close-fitting, lined, princess-seamed bodice (with separate pattern pieces for different cup sizes!).  There are two length options for the skirt (knee-length and midi) and pocket aficionados will be happy to hear that the skirt has pockets.  :-)

 

 

As for fabrics, it can be made in both lighter-weight cotton broadcloths and heavier-weight cotton sateens and silk shantungs.  Here's what I've selected:

 

The first two fabrics are new cotton sateens - our red and cream floral sateen and our blue floral sateen.  The third fabric is a new lightweight floral cotton poplin, while the last fabric is a new navy chambray by Robert Kaufman (which we've also got in a light blue colourway).  

Here's what the prints would look like made up:
