Description

This was a work dress that I wanted to make. After construction, I realized, never trust a patterns neckline from here on out.. but otherwise I think the cut was great. Veeerrry simple construction.

Material Notes

I used a stretch herringbone fabric for mobility in the pencil skirt and jersey lining for that oh so cozy feel.

    Question!!! When you made this, was more room for the bum than the “waist” measurement??? I’m bootylicious and am not sure what size I should make this in.

    This looks great! I understand what you say about the neck line, but it does look great on you. Maybe not the proper office dress…

    It’s hot. If you wear a fitted shirt underneath, you may be able to wear it to the office.

      Absolutely,! Thanks for the comment. This hasnt left for work without a fitted turtleneck or a scarf turned into a cowl neck, I think i may just add one directly to the construcition.
