Sewing for Me {Dottie Angel Frock}

I love the granny-chic style, so wearing baggy dresses or tunics over leggings/ jeans with a cardigan is my jam. Cozy, colorful, warm and unique. Recently, I made a couple of frocks from a vintage Butterick pattern, and love them for the summer weather. Today, I pulled out my new Dottie Angel frock pattern from Simplicity and made a true granny-style dress in preparation for Fall.

I splurged and pulled out a piece of my Liberty of London fabric for the pockets. LOVE! This fabric is on the pricey side, so I use it sparingly; the perfect project to highlight the beautiful + colorful florals.

Added a small piece of vintage ribbon behind one pocket for a little fun. 

This pattern was from Simplicity, #1080. It's new and fabulous and easy to follow. Sewing for me is a new thing, and I'm so happy there are others who appreciate the casual, layered look and share their talents with the rest of us. (Thanks, Tif!)

Now all I need is a cable-knit cardigan and a warm beverage to finish this Fall-ish ensemble. 

What are your go-to wardrobe pieces??
