The Hundred Dresses: Day 73

by Erin on August 14, 2013

I made this dress back in 2007:

yellow bird dress

Here’s a closeup view of the bodice:

A few of the commenters on the original posting were all “Couldn’t you have matched the print?” and now I think they were right.

The bodice is Butterick 6820, but I can’t remember what the skirt was (other than not Butterick 6820). It’s a good skirt, though, so I should figure it out … I think it’s the same skirt as from the Eiffel Tower dress.

Here’s the sleeve detail:

And pocket detail:

Here’s the side zip — a placket and ordinary (not invisible) zipper!

If you look not-all-that-closely you will see that the birds are UPSIDE DOWN on the back bodice:

Even though I had a traumatic pen accident with this dress, I can’t seem to take it out of my closet:

(There’s a [very old] picture of me wearing this dress here.)
