Seersucker Marigold Dress

 Hi there!  I'm back again today for another 30 Days of Sunglasses post. This time I'm sharing a Seersucker Marigold Dress that's perfect for these long, hot summer days.

The Marigold Dress Pattern (affiliate link) from Blank Slate Patterns is officially my favorite new dress pattern.  It's a pattern with a ton of options.  Sew it as a dress, peplum top or skirt, and customize it with an optional sash, pockets, and cap or long sleeves. I've gone withe a dress (obviously) and the cap sleeve option and sadly wasn't left enough fabric to complete the sash.

I love that the dress looks cute without the sash and would look fabulous with a cute, belt (if one had a coordinating belt, that is).

 The placket goes together so smoothly, the over the shoulder back yoke provides a fun way to add color blocking,  and I love the way Melissa instructions provide a clean, professional finish to the elastic casing, 

If you need it, the pattern also includes instructions for a full bust adjustment.  My favorite parts though are the collar and darling "gathers" at the shoulder seam.  These give the dress a classic, retro look which I think is adorable.

I can't wait to sew the Marigold Dress (affiliate link) again in the fall because it looks equally cute with the longer sleeves and would be adorable with some high books.

Now, go check out this week's giveaway at Melly Sews!
