The Reporter Frock Grosgrain Giveaway

Added Jul 25, 2010

Harrisburg, Penn...






To WIN this frock visit Grosgrain

Last week I was inspired to do a bathing suit. I haven’t done one since I made one for Lily nearly two years ago. So I bought some material on ebay and waited, and waited and waited. Still no material. So last minute I threw together this dress on Saturday.

Now, I’ve been liking the black and white with olive green so doing this as a faux skirt and top dress seemed perfect. I thought this looked like something a reporter from the 50s or a secretary from Mad Men would wear, though maybe a little less short. I’ve been looking at too many Modcloth frocks lately. They are ALL SHORT.

Hopefully the bathing suit can be up next week….if I ever get the fabric.

    This is really beautiful! I love the green pleat/ruffle trimmings on the sleeves and neckline. Have you got a tutorial on how to create this technique?

    What a great combination! This looks great – and I agree with you about Modcloth. They are lovely but sooooo short…

    Lovely, lovely garment. (Most reporters dress pretty bad, though! Myself included, when I was reporting.)
