The latest project is a gray wool flannel dress, since it’s too early to be thinking about spring sewing. The flannel had been hanging around in my stash for a year or two, waiting to see what it would be (even fabric can live its way into the answer!) and I/it finally decided on a tailored plain dress.
I used this boatneck version of the shift dress from my trusty Built by Wendy Dresses book and lined it to boot. I’m very happy with how it turned out, but I could not get a decent picture of it last night. When I’m not talking pictures, I promise it hangs evenly on my shoulders, and I don’t think it looks quite so much like a gray sack in real life.
At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
And red tights to boot! I think it is the perfect sew-in-the-moment dress. Who says spring has all the cute projects?
