Mingo and Grace Dress in Chalk Pink Wool

gold chalk dress

To kick off love month, I’m sharing my second Mingo and Grace Dress. This time I went with the gathered option, and used a beautiful chalk pink wool from Hancock Fabrics. Its no longer available online, but I’ve seen a lot more wool options in their stores. (And they are all on sale!).

Gathering the skirt part of this dress with wool was a little difficult. I found it easier to split the skirt up into four sections, gathering one section at a time, and pinning. I just love everything about this dress. I put the whole thing together in two nights, it’s a really quick make! You can find the pattern I used here.

Lately, I have seen some really cool hand-stamped fabric projects on Pinterest. I wanted to try it for myself and give it my own spin, and use the fabric to make a dress. I decided on a shape, and found some cheap fabric. This project had a total cost of $6.00. Here’s how I made it:
