striped brown dress

Added Nov 7, 2008

Basel, Switzerland






I am a big fan of dresses. I bought this fabric for only 15CHF per meter (about 10 euros) in a shop in Geneva (that’s fairly cheap by Swiss standards). Now I wear the dress all the times since it is extremely comfortable. The basic layout is based on pattern 103 from BWOF 02/2008, but I basically changed everything except the arms.

Material Notes

some poly knit

    This dress is so versatile! It could be a casual weekend or work day. I love the boat neckline and color-blocked solid on stripes. This is a like a favorite comfy T-shirt gone classy!
