I will admit that I have never been huge on wearing the color blue, but for some reason I keep making things that would lead someone to believe otherwise.
This dress was started on a whim- I just finished a long term quilting project and wanted to make something simple that could be worn for dressing up or down. I kind of had two muses in mind: Jane Krakowski from 30 Rock meets Kate Middleton chic.
I kind of love it- I made it with a stiffer jacquard shirting from Fabric.com that turned out to be surprisingly nice for costing just $1.95/yard. I kept the sleeves and bodice a little wide with a little darting and elastic cinching at the waist, but tried to make the skirt loose without being full.
