Orange Colored Fabric?!?

While it may not be a part of my preferred color palette, I have very fond memories of the color orange because of a high school friend.  Her favorite sweater was “pumpkin” colored, and simply wearing the color could uplift her mood.

The memory was so positive that I purchased my own pumpkin colored sweater in college as a reminder of her.  And yet, I rarely wear the color these days.

Yellow is another color which I am not often drawn towards.  But I could not resist this print!

The fact that it is printed on a lightweight rayon helped!

But it did take me a while to figure out just what I was going to do with this fabric.  During one of the final heat waves last year, I decided to add another Anna dress to my wardrobe, and this was the fabric that seemed like a perfect choice.

This particular pattern is one that I keep returning to.  I love how easy it is to throw on, and how comfortable it is to wear all day long.  It is certainly not the most technically perfect pattern ever drafted, but I loved the design the first time I saw it, and I still love it, flaws and all. 

I would say that I have probably had my fill of the Anna Dress, but each time I make that statement, another fabric comes along that makes me want to pull out the pattern - so I am not making any promises!

Dress:  Made by me, "Anna" Dress

  1. The REAL Lauramae would have knitted her own pumpkin sweater.

    The dress is gorgeous, but I wonder aloud if there isn't some meddling in blogland.

  2. Beautiful! That fabric really is perfect for this dress.

  3. looks fabulous as an Anna (maybe I need a rayon Anna too ;o)

  4. Lovely dress, and this color does suit you.

  5. The dress is beautiful. I love the print and colors of the fabric. I think orange suits you quite well!
