Oh mama.

Yeah you.

Sweet number.

High wide turtle neck. It can go up, or you can smoosh it down.

Beautiful curved hem.

Slips on over your head—no zippers or buttons or closures, etc. In-seam pockets.

Wear belted, loose, over jeans or longer skirt. Armholes are low enough to wear a sleeved-shirt underneath… Yes, I am thinking ahead for fall and winter.

This dusty pink fabric is designer surplus of unknown content. My guess is a cotton blend. Sheen on the outside, no sheen on the inside.

All seams and edges are overlocked and topstitched to the outside in artisticly contrasting threads. This makes for a very nice experience for you, inside the garment, and a nice textural experience on the outside of the garment. Yay for handmade.

Material Notes

dusty pink designer surplus fabric, thread, love

    so this is how you make a dress that can be worn with a shirt…. maybe i need to venture into the wide world of solid material….

    this is very cool.
