Simple Blouse Week Day 5: Simple Dress

9:34 AM

This last post for simple blouse week is actually a simple dress!
(with pockets of course)

Basically it's the basic blouse with a skirt attached.
The fabric is voile which is really light-weight and therefore semi-sheer, so the blouse is lined and I just wear it with a half slip.
I sewed a few rows of shirring with elastic thread in the bobbin to make the waist area gathered.
It kind of just looks like a matching blouse and skirt, but is really easy to wear and I plan to get a lot of use from it this summer. 
We were at my mom's where we're currently storing my chartreuse velvet couch.
Last fall I saw it on craigslist and my husband got it for me for my birthday.
I love it, but we don't have room for it so it's at my mom's until we move this summer.

It's the end of simple blouse week!
I actually have a few more ideas I may whip up if I get the chance.
