Liberated Librarian Dress

Added Nov 30, 2008

by Angela Ashle...

Melbourne, Austr...






Once was a long sleeve, pussy bow dress that was great in theory, but looked way more Little House On The Prairie than hot librarian on me.

It’s a bit of a free form hack job but I am pretty happy with how it turned out – especially the shirring at the back. My first shirring!

Material Notes

Vintage dress purchased on ebay





Craftstylish for their shirring post that prompted me to try it on this dress.

    hUray! librarians unite! Really cool, I wouldn’t wear it when I am front of house (which I always am!) though. the very few visitors (members of the Institute of psychoanalysis) of the library where I work may read too much into it. Just the thought of it gives me gooze pimples. But it is great creation!
