Chambray Pauline Alice Faura Dress

Welcome to summer in Rochester! Sam and I are so ready to wander around the market on sundays and look at… more plants we don’t need.

On to the dress. I made this dress a little more than a month ago and haven’t had time to shoot it until this weekend. it was a great sew, relatively easy pattern construction and straight forward directions.

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice: Fall Chambray Alder Shirt Dress

 As you may remember, I sewed up a floral Alder earlier in the year and totally loved the pattern. This also was the pattern that pushed me over the edge to start performing full bust adjustments on all of my patterns. I'd love to do a comparison post with a before and after full bust adjustment, so let me know if that would be something you'd be interested in. The floral alder had some discomfort and tightness in the bust, so I sized down the front bodice 2 sizes and performed a 1 inch adjustment.
