Description

I use this mint green houndstooth to make a form fitting dress that has a beautifully entwined neckline giving the simple style a trendy twist.

The original style is a top which I converted into a dress and also changed the style of the sleeve to a 3/4 length. I really prefer this length sleeve and I love the neckline because it is totally sexy without giving off a vulgar look.

What do you think?

    you look fantastic……..I’m about to make this top with cheap fabric as a first try….would you recommend reducing the width of the knot length.???

      Thanks Rosemary…..the only alteration I made was shorten the length of the opening at the front because it would have being too deep revealing too much skin. Everything else remains the same. It is a nice style…cant wait to see your version

    Perfect – it looks like a dress Joan would wear on an episode of Mad Men.

    Cute dress Kisses! I like the unexpected color for the hounds-tooth fabric…. It’s also a perfect fit!

    I love this pattern – I made a top from it. This dress is lovely, it looks really elegant and top fabric suits it (and you) really well.
