Winter Casual Striped Dress

Added Nov 12, 2011

San Francisco Ba...






With my original striped dress shrunk in the wash and beginning to come apart, I decided it was time to make up another. I bought this beautiful striped cotton knit on sale, and this being my third casual striped dress is literally took only about two hours from start to finish. This was greatly aided by my recent serger class, with everything going together really smoothly. It has a rolled hem, cuffed sleeves and a neckband.

    what a cute dress!

    Also, random question but, how did you get the credit line in the description?? I am still a bit new to the site and trying to work it all out :)

      when you post a project, there’s an option to add a credit. it’s about halfway down the form. to make something a link, use this format, with quotes and all: " word ":www.link.com (no spaces)

    I’ve been obsessed with this look since your first version. I’ve even got an homage-to-the-dead-striped-dress project I’ve got to get around to getting up. I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since the first photo I saw of said dead dress. Glad it’s got a successor ;).

    I like it a lot. To me It’s a perfect stripe dress. But you couldn’t wear it here in Germany without tights in winter ;-).
