Sew Cinematic Inspiration Post: Dress

In the midst of all this 'Mad Men' madness I thought I would take the time to share some images that I'm thinking of using as inspiration for the ongoing Sew Cinematic challenge that you can read about on Rhinestones & Telephones blog if you click the badge on the left hand side.

For the dress part of the challenge I've decided to make a 'little blue dress' inspired by Zooey Deschanel's character in '500 Days Of Summer'.
As we're now entering Spring, I've been wanting to make a dress using a light blue cotton or denim and the character of Summer is near enough always wearing blue of some kind in this movie.

For more inspiration I've been scrolling through Asos to see what RTW items are available

I like the idea of adding some cute details to the dress like scallops, lace, bows or maybe even some embroidery? I'm also thinking about making it sleeveless, or at the most with cap sleeves. 
I'm also really tempted to make myself a dark denim skirt after seeing the still from the movie!

Are you taking part in the challenge? If so, what have you decided to make?

  1. Great inspiration. I could totally see a darker denim ginger skirt like the skirt Summer wears. Too cute!

    I really love your idea - I remember being in love with Summer's wardrobe when I watched the movie!
