Ugly Dress

Added Jul 28, 2011

by Danielle Mac...

Brooklyn, New Yo...






I get a lot of cloth from Grandma’s friends too. I got a nice box of stuff years ago with this ridiculous fabric on top and I thought “My god! This is the ugliest fabric I have ever seen.” But I kept seeing it digging for materials and it kind of grew on me. I pictured it as a very slim simple dress and couldn’t wait to finish it and wear it.

Ugly dress and I have been to many functions together where I wanted to look a little obnoxious. I was kind of sad when I lost weight and it no longer fit so I took it in a few weeks ago. It’s nicely lined in a light blue cotton with boning inside. This is also from Vogue 8184

    I love an ‘ugly’ dress. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who likes to go out looking obnoxious! Great job, fits beautifully.

    It looks great! But I know what you mean – a bold print like that on a fussier silhouette would be overpowering.

    I like it. I am working on a more simpler version of a tube dress in yellow.
