For a rainy Friday, a comfort dress. I scanned this ages back for the Sewretro group on Yahoo, as well as just remembered the scan existed today. I love this so, although I’ve only made it once. The fabric wasn’t right — not heavy enough to drape right in the slim-skirt view I made — so I didn’t wear it often.
There’s something about a low, square neckline that calls to me. maybe I am a collarbone exhibitionist? who knows? however show me a square-necked gown as well as I am yours.
I’ve always wanted to make this in two colors, with the center bodice as well as skirt panels (front only) a different color from the rest of the gown (black as well as white? gray as well as red?) however something tells me that would look like a particularly crazy silver-age superhero costume. Obviously, in this dress, my superpower would be making especially delicious canapés.
