Carcoal Grey Back to School Frock – Nicole
Nicole from the Bay area blog, Nicole At Home made a back to school frock from Britex Fabrics’ fabric – a charcoal grey, heavy-weight cotton and a burgundy Bemberg fabrics (both from the remnants department.) She used Vogue pattern V8755, with some variations including adding on-seam pockets…for caramels and school supplies. She also used the lining to create the hem. She says, “I can’t say enough about Bemberg lining fabric. Like poly, it still frays like crazy and is pretty slippery, but it irons wonderfully, is breathable and feels wonderfully soft against your skin. I’m ready for school–I just need my laser pointer and high heels!” We love this dress – it is fashionable and comfortable at the same time, qualities that can be dichotomous.
