turquoise and bows

I finished this little dress last week already but didn't get to blog about it yet. It's sewn from vintage Simplicity7085. I made it even in the same colour as pictured. I love turquoise. The only thing I changed is the position of the bows. Instead of attaching them to the straps, I attached them to the neckline. The pattern was super easy to put together and I think I might make a few of this dress for summer with different details. It's just such a cute little shape.
I love the low back.


  1. Lovely colour! And I quite like the placement you choose for the bows!

  2. That dress is utterly adorable. What year is it from?

  3. How pretty! And in a different fabric it will give a whole different dress I can imagine.

  4. Super cute dress and love the change up with position of the bows... this colour makes me wish it was summer already!

  5. Thank you all.

    @Kimminita, I can see this in a print (I bought so many printed cotton fabrics lately) with maybe just plain white bows or something completely different attached to it.
    @ donna, I know. I am done with winter and the cold.
