New Haven, Conne...
Blue and yellow colorblock dress. The top is double layered, so there’s a fairly close fitting front, and then the cowl neck layer. In the back, there’s two layers, but they’re identical.
I design and draft my own patterns, so if you have any interest in the pattern for this one, let me know and I can make a pdf with the pieces.
Everyone I’ve shown it to says this dress is very “me,” so that’s a success. I’m looking forward to wearing it. It’d be better with a belt, but I’ve yet to find one that works, so I’ll probably go without until I do find one.
I always mean to add pockets to my dresses (because pockets are fantastic!), and I usually forget to add them when I sew up the skirts.
But I remembered here! And they’re large, super comfy pockets, and you can slightly see the yellow peeking out, which I really like.
The fabric is really cool. It’s a linen jersey knit. So it’s super soft, and a bit heavy and pretty textured and slubby. Very fun to work with (but actually doesn’t have that much stretch!).
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
