ORANGE you jealous of my retro mod dress??

I missed sewing on my day off last week... kind of.  I missed sewing, but to be honest, I was content with where I was and what I was doing. I was at Alki Beach, 5 minutes from our house (I still can't believe how blessed I am to live in the area that I do) watching Georgia play while thinking of what I'd sew on the next cloudy day.

I've been in the mood for the color ORANGE lately. Such a vibrant, happy, summery color. I ventured to West Seattle Fabric Company a couple of weeks ago and found this retro-looking, mod fabric that I had to have:

I knew that it would be perfect for the vintage 1960's dress pattern I've been wanting to use. And since Saturday turned cool and cloudy, I spent the day making a new dress!  Here is how it turned out...


  1. It slowly dawned upon me a few weeks ago that quite a lot of the clothes I have made this summer have orange in them somewhere or other.This is not a colour I would ever have said that I liked but I know realise that I LOVE IT !!!! Just a really nice summery colour.Your fabric is really lovely.

  2. I'm liking orange lately too! You are really diving into sewing! Nice work!
