I want to make another version of Simplicity 2209 but need some advice. Can a grown woman, late 30s, mother of 2, fairly conservative and plump carry off a gingham dress? I do love the look of gingham but just a little afraid its too young for me.
I like the darker larger gingham squares rather than little ones
I usually wear pinky/reddy colours but I’m afraid I’ll look a little too Italian-restauranty.
I don’t want to look like a school girl!
What do you think, to gingham or not to gingham? I did want to make a raspberry linen version but I’m having trouble finding the right shade, I could go for a solid cotton (quilting cotton but don’t tell anyone! The pattern can carry off less fluid fabrics) in the right colour instead. What to do………
