A staple dress for me, selfish sewing week

Yay, I managed to complete a selfish sewing week item! Just in the nick of time I might add, since today is the last day. I've seen some really beautiful garments pop up in the blogosphere during this week and noticed a colour trend of grey, blue and black. Well these are my favourites too, so today I add another grey item to the selfish sewing week pool.

I made my second staple dress (pattern by April Rhodes). The staple dress consists out of just two pattern pieces and is an easy sew with a neat french seam finish.The instructions indicate shirring the waist but I decided to leave it as it is. This way it can be worn as a dress with a little belt or more like a tunic with jeans underneath.

Want to know where I got this grey fabric? Yep, again from my upcycle stash, it's a curtain sample.
So did you make anything for selfish sewing week?
