I can’t decide on my feelings about this dress. I really like the drapes on the skirt-bit, but it feels a bit like a pajama with the very wide top-part. That might very well have to do with my choice of material though, which was quite unvoluntary as I had failed to see that it requires a 165 cm’s wide fabric. The one I bought for it (a viscose jersey with thin stripes in two shades of red) was only 140cm’s wide.
This was the only material in big enough a piece I had at home.
Odd. When I look at the pictures I quite like that it’s black and white and not darker. I may have to wait a bit and actually wear it a few times before dying it!
More about it in my blog
Update: I’ve added a picture of the dress as it looks in the book. I forgot to mention that I omitted the slit openings in the sleeves. I thought it might be a bit too flirtatious for me to be able to wear it at work, and cold in winter…
