Mustard Village Frock

If you are looking for a cute fall/winter dress Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop has a great pattern and tutorial available for just 50 cents (that's right I said 50 cents). The Brooklyn Frock is adorable. I love the smashed ruffles and the button closure in the front.

This is the dress we used for our family pictures and I am so happy I went with this one over the country time dress. I love that it is a solid color, it really shows off the details of the dress. I used a linen in mustard yellow that I found at Joann's. So many linens that I love in stock right now. The color is fantastic with the autumn leaves which we had a blast tossing around and rolling in. The buttons are fabric covered buttons with the same material as the dress. If you have never made fabric covered buttons YOU MUST TRY IT! All you need is a button kit (found at almost any fabric store) and follow the directions on the box. So easy and really cute.

I did make one small adjustment adding ruffles to the arms as well. I used the same technique as the neckline but added it to the sleeves (same sleeve length as the pattern with a 4 inch ruffle piece). It just makes the dress more appropriate for the cooler weather.
