Then & Now: Animal Print dress

There's nothing like having a garment that gives you joy year after year.  I made this animal print wrap dress back in 2010 and it continues giving me joy, its a simple silhouette, classic and versatile.

I totally appreciate the power of a classic piece and it was one of the important style lessons I learned growing up...

Then - July 2010



and was often told that it is important to add a touch of modern to a classic piece in order to keep things current & fresh

 Now - July 2014

Adding a bold necklace and a bright jacket keeps it fresh.

Until then have a Great Week.

Classic never goes out of style!

You are so right Eileen. I try to focus on buying and sewing garments that works year after year and seasonless. Of course, one can't do without a few trendy pieces.

Sheila you are right. Your look is classic. That bold red or another bold color will keep the look sizzling hot. Keep up the great work.

I love this idea of "then and now". A great way to feature past projects. This dress looks just as great today as it did back then!
