Hawthorn the Dress

 Hey look I'm over my writer's block after a few months of being super busy in the studio. 

 This is my first Hawthorn dress, but not my first Hawthorn rodeo. This time I kept it super simple with no sleeves or collar(aka I didn't have enough fabric. If someone writes this to my tombstone, I won't mind). It's a size 10 bodice with the changes I made to my Reversible Hawthorn Blouse. The skirt portion is a simple rectangular piece that's gathered in the waist. 

The fabric is a vintage cotton which I scored from an online auction ages ago but like most fabrics I own, it simply traveled to the stash to wait for its turn. I'm happy I chose the Hawthorn for this one. The seams are finished with the serger, the hem is overlocked and turned back once and stitched down. The armholes are bias bound and the neckline is finished with the facings that came with the pattern. I found these cute black buttons for fastening.

This has been one of my favorite pieces this summer. Simple and fun to wear and feels super comfortable.
