I remember when it debuted several months ago along with a few other universally (or, I guess ‘Blogiversally’ is a more appropriate term) pooh-poohed patterns at Vogue. I guess I got swept up in the general dislike and just kind of dismissed the pattern all together.
Well, last night while I was perusing V.com looking to see if there was anything I wanted to buy in the sale today, I took a really good look at the bones of the dress and decided it was actually right up my alley.
…. The tech drawing shows that it has a mock cowl neckline that I find looks good on me
... this sleeveless version's got that extended shoulder line that gives the upper arms a little extra cover while still being sleeveless
... all and all…it’s a pretty cute little dress….
What was I thinking!?!
yoke with cowl effect in front and gathers. B: princess seams, side front
pockets, front opening with collar and tie ends, front neckline gathers and 7/8 length sleeves.
FABRICS: Dress A, B: Crepe de Chine, Batiste and Lightweight
Broadcloth. Unsuitable for obvious diagonals, plaids or stripes. Use nap
yardages/layouts for pile, shaded or one-way design fabrics.
Combinations: AA(6-8-10-12), E5(14-16-18-20-22) ______________________________________________________________
I have this wrap dress that I get compliments on every single time I wear it. I've had it for years and I have never been able to fine another one… until now, I think.
Oohh! I found another 'Inspiration game' piece…
I keep seeing this dress everywhere...
(… as seen on Trend de la Crème)
… This version's got a nice slim (without being too fitted) body and I LOVE the sleeves…
Me thinks this is a job for my handy dandy B5211... ((now its just a matter of figuring out a pattern for those ruffle/sleeves.....hhmmm))....
