Barely got to take any photos of yesterday’s dress but it was a two-color jersey dress that I made back in Boston. It’s from the 09/2010 Burda issue. Here are some photos from a few years ago.
No rectangle sleeves for me this time!
I didn’t really like it at the time. I needed to make it with a ponté knit or something a lot thicker and sturdier. I used slinky jersey fabric that should’ve been used for a dress less structured but it was a learning experience. Somehow, it fit a lot better on me yesterday so I’ll definitely have to take photos the next time I wear it.
Today’s top is a multi-pleated collar shirt with a button-down back. The fabric is from New York. It’s a satin cotton blend that’s warm enough to wear without a jacket on this gloomy Wednesday.
This is the best I can do for a shot of the back. I might have to get inventive with mirrors or simply find my camera and use the timer.

The sleeves weren’t done separately. They’re kind of sewn up Kimono style. For reference:
Will try to get close-ups of the back because it came it really well!
