Pretty similar, don'tcha think? I really love my version, though there are obviously lots of slight differences between mine and the L.E. one. Such as:
- I used wool for my main fabric, while the other is twill.
- I used pleather that actually feels sort of like suede for the "leather" accents, while the other dress uses the real stuff.
- My dress has slightly different coloring, but still maintains the neutral (great for autumn!) palette, so I'm fine with it!
- Mine is more awesome.
Fabric - Pleather and wool suiting fabric from Fabric.com
Pattern - Yoke borrowed from Salme's Yoke Blouse, the rest of the dress a major modification on Grainline's Tiny Pocket Tank (lengthened to dress length, pockets added, neckline extended to meet yoke)
Time - about 5 hours total
Consensus - Love!
P.S. The last thing I made just for me was a dress way back in August. Feels good to get to selfishly sew a little bit again!
