So... when were you planning to arrive? Soon? Good. 'Cause I want to wear this dress.
Isn't it just too cute? To make it, I slightly modified McCall's 6507, omitting the front drape. You see, I'd cut out a simple tank top to wear with my summer skirts, which left my yardage a little too short.
The little shrug is a silk/cotton blend with a lot of body. I love the contrast between the two colors. This shrug is (heavily) modified from vintage Simplicity 4249.
I should have taken a picture of the back. It's so pretty! I raised the U a bit, because it looked a little low (I have to wear a proper bra), but I don't think I even needed to! It's deceptive, is what it is.
In other news, we now match!
I'm excited to see some more versions of this dress! Especially ones with the drape!
