The Love and Business Pocket Dress

Added Oct 3, 2011

Pittsburgh, Penn...






I’m so ready to be sewing for Fall, and that somehow translates into getting more serious about making office appropriate clothing. Maybe it’s because the cooler weather makes me willing to settle down to more adult colors! This dress is a happy medium of sense and romance… two ruffles at the neckline, capped sleeves, a basic bell skirt, and pockets. Would love to get your thoughts!

    How did you get your two layers of ruffles to be so perfectly shaped? Mine just fall limp.

    The dress looks gorgeous!

    This looks really cool. I love it when a dress has pockets – it’s just so much more practical, especially when you wear it everyday, i.e. to work.

    Very, very nice dress. The ruffles are really nicely sewed, and the model fits you well. I like the dress, even though I would’ve made it more colorful, but that’s a question about taste ;)

    The ruffle collar paired with the fitted waist and dirndl style skirt is so feminine and chic. I bet this would great in a jersey fabric as well. Lovely!
