staple dress

There have been a ton of deliveries at the shop the past couple of weeks. Yarn, fabric, patterns, books, you name it! So many wonderful and exciting things to share. I have to slow down though and tell you about a new pattern that you NEED!

The Staple Dress, by April Rhodes has been THE go to for handmade dresses this summer and we can see why.

I myself have made two of them already, one in cotton and one in rayon. I would definietly size down as the pattern seems to run big. I haven’t snapped any photos of my finished Staple dresses yet but below are a few of my favrorite versions out there.

This is Rae from Made-By-Rae’s version.

Elizabeth from Hamilton Chicklets made hers in a neon doubble guaze print!

 April herself made a monifited version with a collar. LOVE it!

Meredith from Olivia Jane Handcrafted made a couple out of chambray with contrast binding.

As you can see, the dress is very versitile and can be made with SO many fabrics to accomodate individual styles. A must have!
