I went to SNAP conference last weekend. That needs a whole post in and of itself, but suffice it to say I had the time of my life!

I needed wanted to make a floral dress for a SNAP party-sooo….I surfed the interwebs for florals and found this ADORABLE, vintage feeling print from my sponsor, Fat Quarter Shop!

They were kind enough to send me the fabric to make a dress, so I whipped up this one in a few hours. Seriously a fast make!

The pattern is The Staple Dress, and I’ve been wanting to make it for awhile-I have a chambray dress that’s similar (never blogged), and I used the Prudent baby tutorial that’s similar, but it’s nice when someone can do all the drafting etc for you, right?

the staple dress is so quick to make and pretty flattering! and oh so comfy! and pockets!

Now I have somwhere to stealthily hide gum or candy that my kids somehow found.

“I don’t know where it went Ava” (said in a sing songy, totally innocent voice)

Truth. right?

  1. beautiful! I love that print and works so nicely with those shoes ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. It’s so pretty! I have had this pattern cut out for a year- I’ve got to get my act together!!!

  3. Aww, it’s really pretty! What a great dress for summer ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Love it! That fabric is perfect! One question though, is it a quilting cotton? And how do you find the drape of it for a dress. I can’t get quilting cottons to look this good on me. But this dress looks totally fabulous on you!

  5. very cute! i hadn’t seen a staple dress for a while (after they blew up the blogs a couple years back) so this was fun to see! still never made one myself.

  6. Love it on you!
