New York, New Yo...
This is a very figure flattering dress with great lines. It went together MUCH more easily than I thought it would, given that it has no side seams.
The only tricky part was the sleeves. I’m just not sure how exactly I was supposed to attach them (confusing directions). They look fine, but the inside is a mess. (Oh well).
I’m kicking myself a bit now that I made this dress in one color rather than color blocking – I think it would be great that way.
I used a pretty heavy weight cotton knit which the salesperson at Mood said was jersey, but is double knit if I ever saw any.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
