Gingham, that simple woven check of summer dreams. I have but one gingham dress in my closet, and seeing as it is so lonely...I have two new ones planned! One in a smaller check in brown and white that will be rather early 40s inspired, the other in a larger check in dark green and white which will be more 50s in style. After all, gingham can be styled oh so many ways and is the perfect textile for summer time, so I ought to have more of it right? Plus gingham fabric tends to be quite inexpensive too which is a nice bonus! I hope I can start on my new dresses soon, but I still have the Edwardian skirt to finish!
