I am pleased nonetheless to present my latest Finished Object:
It's an encore of Simplicity 3673. I made it as part of my Autumn wardrobe plan, and I'm tickled that it also fits into the Hepburn/Hepburn Sewalong. This jumper dress reminds me of something Katharine would have worn in a movie like Deskset (one of my favorites), although perhaps not in this color!
Neither is the 'Corn Rustler.'
The fabric is a lovely, thick, velvety corduroy. It's difficult to see in this picture, but there is a pleated trim detail at the neckline that, along with the color, softens the almost severe simplicity of the dress. It's a new favorite, and one that I predict will be in heavy rotation this Autumn/Winter, over and under blouses and sweaters!
P.S. I didn't realize until I was looking over the post, but both of these scarecrows are cowboys! I swear it was unintentional!
