Look at me at the end of Day 9 of MMM14. I started wearing this dress with a cardigan and a skinny belt.
Then I somehow lost the cardigan at work (I get hot quite easily, so that came off and was forgotten somewhere).
Then the skinny belt, which was a little loose without the cardigan, started to annoy me, so it was shoved in my bag.
By the time I got into the house I kicked off my shoes.
So that’s why all those stylish, carefully layered looks defeat me. I just never remember where all my layers are…
I don’t even remember which issue of Burdastyle this came from, it’s in fact the lining pieces of a gathered cowl neck dress. I once tried the gathered version, but I was really annoyed by having to do different amounts of gathers on front and back pieces, so I ended up using the ungathered lining pieces only. I have dresses, tops, both with and without sleeves galore off this pattern.
Making the dress took around an hour, so if I run out of stuff to wear during MMM I can quickly whip up another version 😉
