indigo striped dress preorder

indigo striped dress

I have preorders for the Indigo Striped Dress available in the Wiksten shop now.  Choose your size between XS-L, and dresses ship October 29.  I've been putting these dresses off for awhile now because they're so much work, but I need to use up the rest of the fabric.  According to the weather here fall has arrived, and this dress is a good layering piece for chilly days.  

I'll have to post some party pics tomorrow!  I spent the whole weekend and today sick in bed so I haven't had the energy to sort through the photos yet.

definitely a perfect dress for layering. i was just thinking of wearing it to teach tomorrow.

sorry to hear you were sick all weekend. it was so beautiful out.

i've no doubt these dresses are a lot of work to make, but your attention to detail really shines in this piece!

Wow, this must be fate! I just lost out on a furious bidding war on eBay for a pair of Swedish Hasbeen clog boots only to click over to your blog and see this dress! I am beyond excited you are selling it again and can't wait to wear it into the ground. ;-) I hope you are on the mend. I also came down with a vicious head cold over the weekend which has me feeling like I am drowning every time I go to eat something. I am looking forward to the Open Studio pics--I saw Jennifer's on Flickr, and it looked like such an elegant, fun time. You all looked so pretty in your flower head pieces! I was really disappointed to miss the event. Take care, Jenny!

If you get to thinking about which sewing patterns to make up and sell, I vote a thousand times for this one :) definitely would be amazing layering piece, but I figure I'd have to adjust the bust line for my larger size.

I think I am in love with this dress!
And btw, I love your blog. I just found it a few weeks ago and it is lovely.

i would love it if you sold a pattern of this dress since it doesn't seem like you will be selling the dress again because of the time consumingness. But it is lovely and i wishfully fawn over the pictures every now and then.

I second the request for a pattern for sale, I love this dress!

Tailoverteakettle said...

thirding the pattern request. would LOVE to make this dress in a springy chambray fabric.

Can I fourth the request to sell a pattern for this lovely dress. I love the Ikat dress also and wondered if you would ever sell a pattern for that one.

DaiseyB said...

I forgot to ask in my last post how much this dress will be and if lg is going to be the biggest.

I just saw this adorable dress in the Stitch with Style magazine and was wondering if you've thought to sell the pattern? I'd love to make this!

Missy Fowler said...

After seeing your dress in Stitch magazine, I'm sure I will not be the only one asking for the pattern! Any chance of it being re-released? We could try to copy it on our own, but since it's the cutest dress I've seen in a long time, I'm sure there are many like me out there willing and anxious to pay for the pattern! :) It's definitely a "must have it now" dress, perfect for summer!

Morningstar Designs said...

Hello,

After reading the comments above it is clear this pattern was very popular. I have not been able to get it out of my head for days! I would love one day if you released this pattern. I have been looking everywhere trying to find something similar.
