Shirt dress as promised
Here it is, my friends. Not the best photo of me, but it shows the dress pretty well. The front has little pleats:
I tried to take photos of the fabric, but I have no idea what I'm doing. This is the best photo I got.
Update: Sept 2010, new photos of shirtdress.
In other news, I finished the houndstooth skirt.
It's just a simple a-line.
Here's the fabric close-up. It's a loosely woven wool so it's also warm and fuzzy.
I lined it, however the lining is ridiculously clingy due to static. It was tricky to wear it on Friday. So, I will tack the lining to the hem of the skirt and see if that does the trick. If it doesn't, I'll have to get creative I suppose.
I'm still working on the pink top (McCall's 5323 view B), but hope to have that pounded out in the next couple of days. I will likely cut out the pleated neck dress (Vogue 8593) tonight.
