Usually when I think of blue and white gingham, I picture Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Since her look is costume and mostly worn for Halloween, I wanted to avoid making a dress out of my old fabric that was too costume. So, I chose to do a basic shift with a slight flare on the hemline and added some black bias tape and half cap sleeves to bring this to life a bit more. With an edgy studded belt, this dress becomes less cutesy and more modern. I also found this blue and white gingham print on the Fall 2014 runways, and will show you how it is being worn on the Runway as well. Hope everyone is doing well. I will now return to your blogs and comment back like normal.
What do you think of this latest creation?
