The Hundred Dresses: Day 99

by Erin on September 9, 2013

We’re gonna go out with a bang … or at least, two very very long posts. Today: the Duro Junior!

The Duro Junior is also known as Simplicity 3875, and looks like this:

Essentially, it’s just a quick and simple kimono-y dress with contrasting bands at the waist and neckline, but boy, is it comfy. I haven’t worn these in a while (they’re a little too short & the skirts are a little narrow for biking) but looking at these photos makes me want to take these out again, or, better yet, work out a new version with a fuller skirt.

Ah sure all you need is big knickers, then you can cycle away. :)

Oh, back in the sixties and seventies they would be called long. How about some leggings? I have totally enjoyed seeing all of your dresses.

I love the variety within this one pattern — I want to get my own now and try it out! The combinations you’ve created are all really nice, but the third one is my favourite :)
