Anyway, here is the finished dress.
|I think the pockets are super fun. Hard to tell from this photo that the sleeves are slightly flared.|
Have you seen the pinterest pin from Banana Republic that features 13 clothing items and accessories made into a month worth of outfits? The simplicity of that wardrobe speaks to me. I was thinking I could perhaps make this dress in a wool jersey with a bit of stretch to start to build a 13 piece wardrobe. It would work well under a jacket, look cute with tights and boots. I might lengthen the sleeves if I take such a route.
Tomorrow, a post of my first skirt from a self-drafted pattern.
