Vogue Shirt Dress
Added Aug 16, 2011
Kota Kinabalu, M...
I love shirt dresses, the ones at the mall are very pretty but usually I couldn’t find them in the length that enables me to hide my stubby knees and calves; now that I made my own, I could hem it to my desired length.
I piped the collars and sleeves. Those pastel pink buttons are rather sweet.
had this green neon belt like forever and I never used it as I thought it was hideous but now it serves a purpose. :)
Fabric : 2.5 yards Takahiro Japanese Cotton from Malaysian local fabric chain Kamdar: RM3.40 per yard (on 50% off sale, yay!);
Total Cost: RM8.50/USD2.80
Pattern: Vogue V8352
Time to complete: Spent average 2 hours each over 4 workdays after 9pm (after Little Terror has gone to sleep)
First worn: On my car porch to model for all of you, 14 Aug 2011
Wear again?: Yes! Oh I do love this one! I think has a bit of vintage twist to it too due to the floral fabric. The dropped waist with the ruffled skirt makes the design quite feminine.
