Summer Hazel, Fall Hazel

After my Mother in law found this amazing vintage gingham at a yard sale I felt compelled to sew it up into a cute dress. Its obviously a bright summery color, but I think with a sweater and some boots I can take it into the Fall without any nasty “she’s wearing white after labor day” looks from old fashioned Grandma types. I got out good old Hazel pattern to showcase the plaid on the bodice “V” seam. I think it ended up being really cute! Pardon the color in these photos, I am on the verge of a camera update, it needs to happen.

Ah see? You can feel the seasons change with the sweater. Ready to go pumpkin pickin Hazel!

    What a lovely take on Hazel! And I totally agree, depending on how you accessorize it, it can make the transition to fall/winter wardrobe without a hitch 🙂

    I like the transition from summer wear to fall wear. I think this will be a great dress when we’re well into fall and getting sick of all those gray and neutral colors. A welcome pop of color!
