Embroidered Denim Dress

I found this gorgeous embroidered light denim fabric at Joann's. It was a little bit more than I normally pay for fabric, but it was 30% off and I had an additional 20% off coupon, so I decided to go for it. I just wanted a casual dress with a simple design for everyday wear. I used one of my dresses as a guide for cutting and kind of made this up as I went. Here is the finished dress.

It is a light denim, but with all the embroidery, the fabric is a little tough. I love the dress and it turned out pretty much the way I imagined, but I wish I made it tad bit bigger.

I have many ideas of how I am going to coordinate this dress with what I already own. Cardigans, scarfs, flats, boots, and other accessories. This is just an example of how I am going to wear it in the fall.

I also made a ribbon out of a part of the fabric. I thought that I can dress it up a little with some heels as well.

Do you have any plans to sew something for your wardrobe for fall? Whatever it is I hope you will have as much fun as I had sewing this simple dress. :)


  1. Your dress looks lovely on you, I haven't sewn for myself since the 1980s but did sew clothing a lot up till then.

  2. Oh you are a cutie pie in your new dress. I think I would like it with the dark shoes. You make me want to sew again. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  3. You did a fabulous job!
    It looks absolutely GORGEOUS on you!
    Happy Labor Day!

  4. It looks wonderful, Sachiko. The embroidery may add more texture than you're accustomed to, but the dress doesn't look heavy at all. Too small? I don't think so; it's very flattering with or without the sweater. Wonderful project!
