I whipped this dress up on a Saturday night while Scott was studying at the library. This grey doubleknit was just sitting in my fabric stash (leftover from my Tiny (No)Pocket Tank 2), waiting patiently to be used up, and I figure this was the perfect project!
I'm calling this one the Everywhere Dress, because I feel like I could wear it...everywhere! And anywhere! In fact, I wore it to work yesterday under a cardigan. I feel like it could be just as fitting for a dinner out with heels, or with some flat sandals for a summer picnic. I put in an elastic waist band (my favorite!), so it's extra super comfortable, and in fact, I didn't even take it off when I got home from work and wore it all the way until bedtime! And probably would have had no problem sleeping in it.
The neckline gathers along the top...
and the back has a little keyhole and ties in a bow.
And the final reason that I like it so much...it's of my own design! No commercial pattern used for this one whatsoever, just my own idea, some measuring tape, the fabric, and some scissors. I might make this one in every color of the rainbow. And then sleep, eat, work, and play in them all the time.
