Description

based on mccalls 5882, a kay whitt design, but i didn’t add a contrast hem, changed the neckline, and shortened the tie so it ties at the back, rather than winding around to the front. i felt adding an extra contrast piece for the hem would take away from this bumblebee fabric, and the original boat neckline just didn’t look right at all so i made it a v-neck. this made doing the facing a bit awkward so the shoulders don’t look fantastic of examined closely. the dress is versatile and can be worn in any season, with tights and a long sleeve shirt in winter, by itself in summer, and anything in between.
when i finished and tried on the dress i thought it looked very much like something zooey deschanel might wear, hence the name i’ve given it.

    Your dress is so pretty and I’m in love with the fabric. It dose look like something Zooey Deschanel would wear. I love her style! Great job!
