The Hundred Dresses: Day 31

by Erin on July 3, 2013

This is another Vogue 9929 — I’ve posted a picture of me wearing it before.

This gingham one, in particular, is really easy to wear. It goes with just about everything (ok maybe not everything, but quite a lot of things).

That front view was a little out of focus, try the bodice view here:

Another C+ zipper:

And the back:

Every time I wear this dress I think, “man, I love gingham, I wish I had a gingham dress in every color.” I once had a beautiful brown-and-cream silk gingham dress made in this pattern, which was equally wearable. I think that gingham dress finally died when a pen exploded in my pocket. (Took me a long time to figure out that some of those early ink rollerballs didn’t combine well with pressurized airplane cabins … there were many casualties.)

This one is still going strong! Maybe I’ll wear it today …

gingham stripes? well I never.

Neat dress (that’s UK neat, not US neat, but it’s that too).

Nurses, Scotch and Zepyher gingham? Well I never, either. The roll over messages are as much fun as the rest of the content (and pics). Thanks.
