Warning! This post will contain an obscene amount of pictures. I just can’t get enough of THIS DRESS!!!
I love Farrah at Mingo and Grace’s simple and classic patterns. Her clean lines and gorgeous silhouettes are so versatile.
Only problem is my girls had already sized out of her one of her most popular patterns- the Blake dress. Farrah listened to all of us tween moms and has now upgraded the Blake to size 12!! Hooray!
And while she was at it she threw in a ladies version as well. Hello awesome!
The bodice of this dress has darts to really flatter and I love the wide shoulders and high neckline too.
There is an invisible zipper and two different back shapes- full and racerback. We choose the full back for Sophie.
The ladies version has a sleeve option as well.
The skirt features big box pleats and optional inseam pockets. Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?!
We loved dressing this down with a denim jacket and boots.
But she’s also anxious to wear it for the holidays, all dressed up with glamorous accessories.
You know when you go into the fabric store with one vision in mind and come out with something completely different? That was me and this dress. I originally thought of doing this dress in a printed stretch sateen or twill. I did Sophie’s version first and this Casa Collection Satin from Joann’s caught my eye.
It’s such a vibrant, beautiful shade and suits my Soph so well.
I used a stretch sateen from Joann’s for my version and it’s the perfect balance of fancy and easy wear.
