|Love the hemline on this dress!|
|Love those raglan sleeves!|
I originally wanted white linen (100% - in all of it's wrinkled glory!) but unfortunately the cut that Virginia has in her stash fell short by about half of a yard.
Virginia had quite a bit of this poplin fabric on hand. I remember why she'd purchased it: To use as backing for drapes that she was going to make for her bedroom. She got it from a local fabric store (who has since gone out of business) that specialized in Home Decor Fabric.
|After having the dress on most of the day I figure it couldn't get any dirtier! (The only disadvantage of wearing white)|
I fall hard for shirt dresses and this one is no exception...even without a collar. I contemplated the three-quarter length sleeve but decided to go with the shorter sleeve instead.
I liked the rolled sleeve which is View A but prior to finishing the sleeve for that style I discovered that I liked it "as is" so I finished it with a narrow hem. But now if the urge hits me?...I'll roll 'em up!
|Hip bones in motion!|
I didn't want to bother with a slip so I underlined (the whole dress) with the same fabric.
|At the request of my photographer, I'm trotting - #needtodothismoreoften!|
I decided to go with a multi-colored - brown, creme and white button instead of just plain white.
|Did I mention that I love these sleeves?!|
Another easy dress pattern with great results! I'm feelin' it!
|Church gear! - Love the blue hues in this pic!|
