These dresses were my inspiration for today's garment. I have a few items like leggings, and long sleeved striped tees to wear under this dress that might make it look like my fave Gudrun Sjoden's style. But it looks pretty good just by itself, altho my husband says it reminds him of the Confederate Cemetery down the street from us.
The fabric is a polyesterlycra mix that is quite stretchy, which I ignored when I chose the pattern. I used one of my mash-up tee shirt patterns and added length to the sleeves and hem. When I tried it on it was baggy and had to be taken in until it looked decent, which took about three tries. Duh.
Live and learn.
