I love me some gingham. When a friend gifted me this vintage fabric some odd 3 years ago, I immediately knew I wanted to make a Marilyn-inspired dress to suit. Normally I don’t mess around with directional print (which you could argue that gingham falls under that category) and circle skirts, but I figured the gingham was small enough to avoid that “upside down smiley face” effect like when you use stripes in a circle skirt for example. Some people like playing around with draping directional prints, but it’s not for me. Anyways. When I first started on this dress over 2 years ago, I had recently acquired a copy of the bodice pieces (just 2 pieces, ha) from McCalls 9378 and knew it would be the perfect pattern. I was excited to not have to sew darts back then, what can I say? Also I had pics of this…
