This is the ‘Robe Éléonore’ from the République du Chiffon book ‘Un été de couture’. It’s been on my to-sew list for a long time. The cross-over bodice is such a great blank slate to play with. I was rummaging around in one of my (three) boxes of scrap fabric that I don’t know what to do with and this mustard wool with chevrons on it jumped out at me and I immediately thought of the Éléonore dress. The blue fabric is some chambray I bought a few years ago for the Archer shirt. Nothing much to say about this dress other than I really love it!
