I am not sure why it took me so long to realize how amazing chambray is. Its the most perfect neutral fabric that works great with almost all woven patterns. The high waisted Brumby skirt I made recently is what put me over the edge. It is quite possible I will now make all the things in chambray.
Over the summer I was dreaming of a chambray shirt dress but never seemed to get around to making one. So when I had the chance to sew the Alder Shirt Dress by Grainline Studios for Indiesew I jumped at the chance. Because I am a hoarder of fabric I had the most perfect herringbone chambray in my stash that was just calling to be made into a shirt dress.
