#MeMadeMay Monday - My Favorite Dress
For the month of May, I took a pledge along with thousands of other makers, hosted by So, Zo... What Do You Know? with the official hashtag of #mmmay18 My pledge was to wear and share Indygo Junction Patterns every day through the month of May. And I did! Here's some of the highlights!
The Indygo Essentials Shift Dress
One of my personal favorite patterns to wear is our Indygo Essentials Shift Dress. It's one of my go-to patterns. and I love how it's comfortable, but also both casual and elegant, which makes it perfect for almost any occasion.
This is the perfect pattern for the dress every woman should have in her closet, the classic LBD - Little Black Dress. Mine is made in black denim and I love wearing it with great statement jewelry. Statement Jewelry is my favorite kind, and I'm featuring some of my Me Made May favorites over on my Amy Barickman Vintage Made Modern Blog.
It's a great one for textured wovens, like this one from Textile Creations.
The sleeve cuffs and the way the neck is made give opportunity for topstitching to add details.
One of my favorite things about this pattern is the details. The line drawing shows how the back neck makes a slight V shape, and the unique inset pockets give it a contemporary accent . The side vents along the topstitched hemline add to the unique detail. Do you like my necklace? Check out my post about the unique jewelry I wore during Me Made May.
And how fun is it in a great statement fabric like this one in Frond Designs I wore to the E.E. Schenck Trends event I spoke at this spring. This is me with June Wildash, who taught sewing classes at my mom's store, Donna's! She's a wonderful teacher! And she's wearing the Indygo Essentials Mandarin Vest here, in On Point Fabric from Maywood Studios.
