I ususally like to have a new ‘all rounder’ dress/outfit for the holiday season. As it’s summer here, I obviously need something cool. I also like to wear what I have, which means it will be worn over and over again, so needs to be a little versatile.
[singlepic id=39 w=320 h=240 float=left]This is the dress pattern. I’ll be going for the view with the short sleeves and collar. It’s Vogue Patterns 8577.
I figure this is a dress that can be worn with heels or flats, by itself or with a wrap, and accessorised with a simple pendant or pearls.
[singlepic id=38 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=right]I have some fabric in my stash that I think will be perfect for this dress, I have just enough for it, I think. Just need to grab some plain poplin/polypop for lining. The motifs are about 3″ across, and the background is a lovely cream/off white colour, it’s 152cm wide and I have 4m of it. So it should be enough, given that I usually have to shorten things anyway.
