Zig Zag Pattern Tour: White Linen

If you were following this last installment of Project Run & Play, you may remember this adorable little chevron dress below from See Kate Sew.  I loved the sweet vintage innocence of it.
So when she asked if I would be interested in making my own version I was excited to try it.
I made my version in a simple white linen with orange and white chevron buttons.
I loved this white linen. Not too heavy but not too see through, either. You can find it here at Low Price Fabric. The orange chevron buttons were also from Low Price fabric and you can find them here.

We took these photos at the old Methodist church near our home.
They recently had the best rummage sale and I got a colorful granny square afghan and a beautiful pieced quilt for eight bucks.
I love white linen. So simple but so classic.
Such a beautiful country day!
The pattern is very simple to sew and the directions are well written and photographed. I think a beginner could tackle this project with success.
It actually took me about three hours to make including cutting. I used my serger to sew most of it.
I also made this cute little white linen flower hair pin with a linen scrap. It's so easy to make. You just twist the fabric, roll it  up, and glue gun it to a felt piece.
The church is surrounded by farms. Sometimes I can't believe this place is only an hour from LA!
I love this dress! The shoes are just my favorite. Would you believe we bought them at K mart? The fabric looks like Liberty of London.
Thank you for stopping by! If you would like to try the Zig Zag pattern, you can find it at See Kate Sew.
