The Weekend Wenlan

Sometimes you need a dress that you can move in. A comfy little number that you can throw on and feel cute and just be done with it. That’s how I feel about this Wenlan dress. It’s perfect for weekends and just hanging around…

It was pretty simple to extend the length of the dress and eliminate the collar. I even added pockets but sewed them in a bit too low. Of course, I was making the dress last minute so my option was to have funny pockets, or no pockets. I hurried up and removed them so I could get out the door on time, annoyed at myself for not measuring correctly. You think I’d learn one of these days…

The dress is super comfy and quick to sew. I used a light wool suiting I picked up at an outlet in Minnesota over the summer and only ended up paying about $4.50/yd! I think it would be nice in a voille for late spring or summer, as well…so you might see a few more of these. I’d love to have a budget for some Liberty prints!

Go make yourself a ‘happy weekend’ dress!
