When I saw this floral printed denim I just had to have it for this dress. Unfortunately it is sold out, I almost didn’t get any myself. There aren’t any other printed denims available but there are several floral brocades (here) that I think will work nicely.
Though a little too hot to wear now, I’ll be wearing this dress come fall and even into earlier winter over tights. Have you started your fall sewing yet?
