I got the latest Nordstrom catalog earlier this week and I noticed the gingham dress on the front. It reminded me of the top I made last summer and also Reese Witherspoon's line, Draper James.
The dress is a standard shirt dress with belt and would be a great sewing project! You can find 1 inch gingham navy fabric at most fabric stores or online. I would recommend using a shirt dress pattern such as McCalls 6696.
Here is the top I made last summer that I never ended up posting.
I used McCalls 6751 pattern for this top.
