Forage Pearl Dress

I love this dress! This is the Green Bee Patterns Pearl Dress which I’ve wanted to make for so long. For me I feel like it’s the perfect simple dress and I love the way it fits and feels. I know I’ve shown a lot of bags using Forage (my new collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics), but the garments I’ve made are so comfy! So here it goes!

The garments I’ve made using Forage have been so great to work with and comfortable to wear. Be sure to wash and dry your fabrics before getting started on your project. This Pearl Dress is honestly something I’ll pull from my closet a ton! Lately, I’ve liked the idea of wearing a dress in the summer. It’s simple and cool in the hot humid weather we have this time of year. I also like that I don’t have to worry about finding a top and pants or shorts that go together and that are both clean! The laundry situation here this summer is hit or miss.

I highly recommend the Pearl Dress, it comes together easily. It has side seam pockets which are so handy. I love the sleeve length, too. It’s that great elbow length that I’ve been really loving lately. I will definitely be making this dress again, it’s a great way to show off a fun print. I think it’ll transition into fall really nicely with some leggings. The linen/cotton blend of the Essex is so breathable.

Can’t wait to show you the other garments I’ve made!

    I’m so glad you posted this. I have been wanting to make a garment from your fabric, but I wasn’t sure about how it would drape. It’s so helpful to be able to see this on you. I love how this turned out.
