I was thinking that I would do a different type of garment each week, but the weather didn’t cooperate, so instead of another top today, I’m in a dress. It was sewn last summer from the Dottie Angel/Simplicity 1080 (now 9122) pattern, so this is actually its first appearance in MMM and on the blog!
I’ve paired it with a Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s sweater which is now 10 years old, and a fused glass necklace gifted from an aunt when I was quite young that I have actually had repaired (I dropped it and the tip broke off) in an effort to be less wasteful. And no shoes, because I was at home all day and prefer to be barefoot.
- The fabric was from Colchester Mill Fabrics and Quilting Store, which has really beautiful designer quilting fabrics.
- I had to lower the waist tucks.
- I never added the patch pockets. I might just do in-seam ones because I prefer them in terms of function.
- For me personally I’ve found that it looks much better when worn with a sports bra than a regular one.
