Alabama Studio Style: Circle-Spiral Applique Dress

Clara reads to the girls in her supremely comfortable, eminently wearable new Alabama Chanin dress. All stitched by hand from the pattern in Alabama Studio Style, with a few changes. I added short sleeves, raised the neckline, added an inch in length to the bodice, and two inches to the skirt. She says it is the most comfortable dress she's ever had.

Now, that is a dress that I am tempted to covet! It looks so comfy! That goes so well with curling up and reading to your sisters. :) And I love the design and the color.

Can I even tell you, I stumbled upon your blog over a year ago.

My life is very different. I am single, about to turn 30, a business owner- but I dream of having a life such as yours.

Yours is truly blessed. And whenever I need to escape my crazy life, I come to read your blog and find such comfort in all of your goodness.

Thank you so much for allowing the world to be inspired but such an amazing way of living.

God bless you.
