This is sort of my experiment in making a clothing that can be worn in more than one way. It started as a long dress with empire line. I traced a long-sleeves shirt of mine to make the pattern of the top part. The lower part is just a wide rectangle sewed on the sides. Then I cut two big holes near the bottom of the dress, using a plastic container as a guide. There you go!
Now I can wear it as a long dress with mysterious holes on the side, and when I don’t want to trip over, I just fold the lower part and slip those holes on my shoulders. As the fabric doesn’t fray a bit, I left the necklines and hem just the way they are.
Not really a winter outfit, I suppose. But I really like it!
