Lately I became a big fan of dresses. I want to wear them all the time, even in colder seasons.
How to wear dresses all year round? Choose them made from slightly warmer fabrics!
My newly sewn dresses have been made from warmer fabrics such as cotton drill and wool blend. On top of that both dresses have been lined.
They look great with cardigans and jackets. I like to wear them with belts too.
Depending on kind of accessories, shoes etc used- these dresses can be easily styled into either day or evening look.
I used the same pattern for the bodice with panels mixing in black drill with red tartan and blue cobalt.
Skirts have slightly different shapes though.
Cobalt blue skirt only has two pleats in the front and two in the back that have been stitched in place along the hem line, this creates slightly round/ oval shape.
Red tartan skirt has been evenly gathered/ pleated around the waist creating a very flattering A-line shape. Adding a belt here really emphasizes a slim looking waist.
What do you think?
