Nothing exciting here – just a garment I have been meaning to make for years. So after finding inspiration on burdastyle this morning, I jumped straight in.
Nothing says ’I’m home’ and ‘Relax’ for me more than to change into my house dress and my slippers when I get home from work. What is my house dress? It is a very cheap sleeveless, shapeless dress that I bought from a sale rack about 10 years ago. I am literally flogging this dress to pieces as I wear it around the house all the time. So this morning, I made a quickie pattern from it and got to work.
It is not technically perfect, but what it IS is a finished started project (if you know what I mean), AND a second house dress to wear in. :-)
Made from a bundle of blue crinkle fabric I bought from Vinnies for $6, AND there is still 4m left !!!
Vinnies – great source of “someone elses impulse fabric purchases” to find inspiration from and bring home to add to your own fabric collection.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
