If you spend a considerable amount of time with me (or in my facebook albums), you'll see that once I find a shape that I love, it shows up in many different ways. My staple for the past few years: a cap-sleeve sheath dress... with pockets.
I've made this dress in silky black, knitted mint green, and countles
s other fabric perutations of it. Seriously, I can't stop.
Recently I picked up a great fabric by Marimekko (which I could also go on and on about). I even made a fabric rosette headband with the remnants because I loved it so much. Possibly a full mini to come as well.... but I digress.
Instead of leaving the dress as is this time around, I decided it would look great as a shorter dress, and even a tunic! So with some carefully calculated button placement:
The Laura Dress
If you are one to see me around town, get ready to see this (and lovely versions of it) all the time.
