I needed a new dress for the Disposable Show, of course. It might seem silly, but I love to make a new outfit for special occasions. When I look in my closet, I see a collection of memories made with fabric.
I have a real thing for navy at the moment. I actually just cut out another navy dress this morning. I can’t get enough of this colour. This linen has gold metallic threads running through it, the fabric is so gorgeous. I cut the bib yoke out on the bias again. The diagonal effect of the plaid makes me pretty happy.
For the pocket, I used the fabric that inspired my skateboard colour palette. Don’t be surprised when you see me showing off the inside of my pockets, it’s one of my favourite details to pick out for a new dress. You can check out my pockets anytime.
The best thing about this dress is that it’s so comfortable. With the rolled up sleeves, I have so many more options of the weather I can wear this dress in. Also, the metallic gold makes it a bit fancy, if I want it to be. The night of the Disposable Show was super chilly, so I wore the dress with dark skinny jeans and navy pumps. Perfect.
I haven’t yet made any of my dresses three times, but this pattern is a definite candidate for that.
