This is what I call the Mac and Cheese dress because the color reminds me of that crazy cheese powder from the old kid-food favorite. And while I think it’s been years since I’ve had anything resembling the blue-box staple in my diet, this dress is one of my favorites.
I made the dress back in 2012 in the early spring so I could wear it to some of my bridal showers for my upcoming wedding that year. I instantly fell in love with the way it fit and looked.
The pattern is Butterick 4443 which in my house, is used quite frequently because it’s both easy and flattering while still being a simple pattern to adjust when necessary.
The fabric is an orange/yellow cotton with felted white polka dots. The fabric was found at a garage sale in a box of miscellaneous fabrics that I picked up for a grand total of $3.
I wear this little number with white accessories, black accessories, turquoise...and on a chilly day, I’ve been know to pair it with a dark green sweater. I’ve found it to be a fun way to brighten up my wardrobe, since it has proven to be so versatile.
And since it’s my favorite dress, you can expect to see quite a bit of it while I chronicle Me Made May 2015 on Instagram.
