Day 21

Sunday Projects

Today Tyson and I are working on some projects at home (him painting and I pattern drafting). We popped out for a quick lunch so I threw on some black jeans and a jersey dress then put on the U.P dress with the buttons undone except for one at the wait. I then gathered up the skirt portion and wrapped it around my waist as tightly and flat as possible and tied it at the back. This silk fabric is quite thin, similar to parachute fabric, so it really does flatten out quite nicely, it’s amazing how flat it can become! Since the back is cut so low I usually find it necessary to close an upper button while wearing it this way so it doesn’t fall off my shoulders, but today I used a wooden cameo brooch to hold it in place instead. I then threw on one of my favorite vintage blazer in an amazing floral, grey leather oxfords I picked up in NY last spring and my cozy knit hat…so handy while growing out bangs!

Thanks to everyone who helped us reach $1500! It’s really an accomplishment, but those amazing children need $8500 for their school to be built. We have a ways to go and not much time, so spread the word!

For those of you who recently got the LBD pattern, here are some instructions on Modifying Your Pattern >

Wow!! On first look, I totally thought you weren’t wearing the dress, and was confused as to the day off from wearing it, but by the third pic I realized that actually is the dress! I am totally blown away with this look and how you changed it up! Amazing

You are right-I cannot believe how flat it gets! Supercool. Really love that under-dress, great colors.

I like that you repurposed the dress until it almost disappeared, but when you look closely its actually crucial for hanging the outfit together – it isn’t hiding, its just transformed. Great stuff.

WOW – It’s amazing that you can’t even tell you’re wearing the same dress! I think you’ve made this one more versatile than any others!! Great creativity, as always! And I love the jersey dress under it, with the peek of a pattern.
