The Hundred Dresses: Day 5

Ready for day five? Vroom!

Cars 1577 front view

This is a 1577; it’s from fabric I bought in Japan; and the cars on the collar are upside-down:

Which I’ve decided I like, in a way.

I wore this on Wednesday and really liked it (that was its first outing). I wore it with plain black Keds and a bright orange v-neck cardigan from Lands End Canvas.

The pocket linings and collar facing are just plain black cotton:

Side zip? Why yes, there is one!

And the back:

As always, the 1577 is so easy to wear (probably because I make the pockets extra big). This fabric is a little bit heavier than quilting cotton (think light denim weight) and so this version seems a little sturdier.

Every time I make one of these, I think, “why don’t I make this dress all the time?” So maybe I’ll cut another one out in the next couple of weeks or so …

  1. thanks for the earwurm!

    another winner. this is hard. I’m not expecting any duds, (dud duds! ha!) so I’m going to have to think of 100 compliments.


  2. I love all of your dresses and wish I could wear those styles, but I fear that what looks cute on a shorter and smaller person will look just dowdy on me. Your dress + sneakers + cardigan makes a fashion statement, but on me it would look — odd. I think. But maybe I should try it. (Loved your book, btw. Well done.)


    • Thank you!

      I think dresses and sneakers look good on everyone. Give it a shot, you might be surprised … 🙂
