It’s made from the Five and Ten Designs Volume One, dress e-book. (We are having a Black Friday sale by the way! Scroll to the bottom for details. )

I love the look of the basic dress, so I stuck to the basic and added long sleeves (the dress book comes with a bonus sleeve pattern). I also wanted to keep the design simple since the print is so bold. The only change I made, was to add more volume to the skirt, because I’m a sucker for twirly dresses and I had enough extra fabric.

To add a little color to her ensemble, I made her a shawl cardigan in red. It’s Look Two in the Five and Ten Designs Volume Two, jacket e-book, designed by the lovely Jessica Christian.

My favorite thing about the shawl cardigan is how it looks almost blazer like, but drapes like a cardigan.

It’s completely lined, so it’s warm and cozy. It’s really a great piece that can work well through Fall, Winter, and Spring.

Her scarf is from a free pattern I shared HERE. I originally made it as a test scarf for another one I was going to make for this outfit, but the gray ended up working out perfectly!

    I love it!! I have some black and white gingham that is now destined to be a baby girl dress! It’s summer here so it’ll have to do. Thanks for sharing :)

    Well this is just too cute! If I wasn’t already knee deep in holiday sewing I would scrap my plans and go with big check plaid. I love the whole look and I can’t wait for the belt tutorial since I really love that belt!
