Dress Like Your Grandma

Before I get started, Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs came out today.  I am going to try to NOT read it in a day or two.  Trying to distract myself...

 

I have decided to take part in the Dress Like Your Grandma sewing challenge.  Here is a photo of my great grandma. 

She is wearing the same dress in multiple photos from multiple decades.  She must have made these herself.  It looks fairly simple, so I think I can do it.  This version has a square neck and applique roses at the neck and on the two pockets that aren't very visible here.  I plan to add embroidery to mine in those same places.  I have picked a mushroom and a fairy from the Sublime Stitching pattern - Gnomes and Fairies.

 

She has a shirt dress on in a few photos.  I may also make that one, but I just finished 2 shirt dresses, so it's not high up on my list.
