Simplicity 5942 - Vintage Pattern

I have had this dress made since the end of July, but couldn't get
it  photographed or blogged..whew!!
NOTE: click on the photos, to enlarge, You will be able to see close up..

Simplicity 5942
Gingham check with cherries  fabric  from stash.
I made the little bow...but, it just didn't work for me..
[too old.ha] The dress is comfortable, and  wears well.
I had worn it all day , when this photo was taken..So,
it looks wrinkled and unkept.. 

This dress was for my MAGAM challenge. for July.
I did complete it in July..
Fabric and pattern came from my stash. The only thing.
I purchased was the zipper.  The belt was borrowed from
another dress.

  4. It looks lovely, Judy! If it IS wrinkled it's because if fit so well, and you wore it comfortably all day. Sounds like a winner to me. I really need to get on with this next 'chapter' to see what things may need to be added to my wardrobe.

  5. I agree with everyone else - comfortable, pretty, wearable summer dress - what more could you want? And for around the house and garden, in the heat, the best sort of dress.

  8. So adorable! Perfect everyday dress to feel comfortable and feminine.
    By the way we are never to old for bows (i think) Perhaps if you made a
    real small one it wouldn't look to "girly girl" and would complete the outfit!

  16. My daughter loves cherry print fabric and I bought a yard of this same gingham and cherry fabric and made her a table runner and a pocket wall hanger with it!
