At first glance there is nothing Greek about this dress, but… despite the fact that this is female dress it was inspired by male Greek toga. Well, nowadays it is called shirt dress.

Unfortunately you can’t really see on the pictures that I used the combination of pale pink blush crepe and black eyelet fabric (that I got from Jo-Anns in remnant section, only 1/2 yard, it was barely enough!).

I chose my favorite New Look pattern for raglan sleeve T-shirt 0911. This time I chose the variation of this pattern with long sleeves and I should say I was quite disappointed. I knew that raglan sleeves won’t really sit as fitted as classic sleeves, but for some reason my sleeves came out completely off, messing up the neckline as well. I ended up re-doing and re-sketching the pattern on my own. And now it looks the way it should.
