San Leandro, Cal...
another dress in my quest to make jersey dresses my new work uniform, rather than blouse-and-jeans. this is in some sort of heavy synthetic knit that i thrifted. the pattern is simplicity 3835. i was going to do the yoke but the neck, once gathered, was way too bulky. so no yoke. on the other hand, it’s so thick and fake it doesn’t wrinkle, not after a whole day of meetings and desk work. i usually pair this one with a merino cardigan that i have which is very boxy and just ties at the waist.
synthetic double knit
