i actually made this dress over two years ago, let it hang for a while, finished it in a mono-induced spurt of productivity, and then hated on it for another year. while it’s adorable, and i love the original pattern, i couldn’t make it quite click for me. also, now that i know from a moulage, the back doesn’t fit comfortably and that bothers me.
fortunately, a nice, matching belt from pat’s seemed to work out all of those kinks. and it was almost 90F yesterday in NYC. in APRIL. that demands a summer dress, wouldn’t you say?
also, now that i have found the most amazing sweater-shrug EVER, i had something to wear over this little sleeveless specimen so that i could not die of hyopthermia in my office. am i the only one with this problem? sometimes, in august, when i am wearing a wool cardigan and sitting under a blanket, i am pretty sure i am. and the cardigans get old fast, especially when a little shrug that hits right at the natural waist is a much more flattering option…
