New York, New Yo...
this dress was actually inspired by a safari birthday, but i think it works as a winter maxi (especially now that winter is totally F’ed up and it’s 60 degrees every third day.)

i used cynthia rowley for simplicity, 2250, and what a COOL pattern this is— lots of weird darts and pleats and great instructions on exactly how to proceed. would have gone a lot easier if i hadn’t used this eyelet/mesh lace/crochet stuff— it was a bear to mark— but i’m happy with it! i’m in the middle of shortening it, as the maxi length was for the challenge.
