I love that you wore it with a turtleneck...and once it's a little warmer you can wear it alone with a jacket! Great job! So what will the next one look like? ;)

That is just too cute, you have a great sense of style and what works for you but I can't think of anything that wouldn't and you know I love me some Frankie lol.

Thank you for the Awesome Compliments!

The dress was a pleasure to wear and enjoyed the fact that at the end of a 12-hour day there was minimal wrinkling.

@ Carolyn: I sifted through my fabric and have tentatively selected a taupe w/ cream pinstripes cotton/spandex fabric. I say tentatively, yesterday I stopped at Sav-a-thon and purchased several yards of fabrics - a few yds in poly/wool and a few yds in poly/cotton.

Congrats on finishing this! You look awesome in it. So classic. I love the way you styled it. It was worth the work.

I have this fabric in grey and chartreuse - I'm so glad to hear that it's not a wrinkler. I just cut out a skirt from another Vera fabric, a chartreuse twill, that turned into a wadder b/c the fabric is so wrinkly. Oh well, at least it was only $1.99/yard. Speaking of, don't you love how your dress was, what, about $4 to make?! Certainly does not look like it!

Sheila said...

@ A Sewn Wardrobe - Thank You!

Sorry about the charteuse twill. I have the charteuse H-print also and thinking I will make a skirt with it. It felt good wearing a $4.00 dress ;)
