Sew and Tell – Colorful Chevrons: Now Available as a Dress!

Where quilting and fashion collide…

Who knew I was so fashion forward? I got a kick out of this picture showing a dress version of Colorful (Quilty) Chevrons! One of my blog readers (Samantha K.) pointed it out to me and it’s from Southern State of Mind Boutique on facebook, a store in Texas that sells amazing boutique dresses. (Picture re-posted here with their permission).


Isn’t it fabulous? I’m almost tempted to buy one for myself. Wouldn’t that be a riot? I didn’t realize that when I compared my quilting to a runway fashion show earlier in the week that could actually be a possibility, LOL!

You know of course that I was independently working on my color and design months ago while whoever designed this dress was independently doing the same thing. The fact that we chose similar colors and design is a testament to just how much the chevron shape has infiltrated popular culture!

Hmm – maybe I should commission someone to make dress versions of all my quilt designs….?

    Maybe you can make a deal with them. I personally like the quilt better than the dress, but I think it is uncanny that they are so similar in color.

    Wow. That’s awesome!

    How funny! I can’t believe how similar the colors are too!

  5. That dress is cute! How funny when a trend so similarly permeates different platforms

    What a hoot! Why not have the dresses designed? It would take wearable art to à new level.

    You’d stand in front of your quilt at a show & we’d lose you haha! I love the dress. You could start a trend :)

    Why not? You’ll never know how successful it can be unless you try, right?

    I like this dress! It’s fun how close it is to your quilt. I second the motion for buying yourself this dress.

  13. Haha, that’s awesome! Like Julie (Jaybird) at her Schoolhouse session!

    That is great! I actually like it in dress form, too. Yes, definitely dresses for all your quilt patterns! How cool would it be to stand in front of your quilt hanging in a show … in that dress!
