Ready for day five? Vroom!
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!
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 …

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.
Cute cars. I’d like to just make one dress all the time, it’ld be like Maggie Cheung in In the Mood for Love.
I love this dress!
And the pattern seems to be gone gone gone. I cannot find it anywhere.
What an awesoms dress! Love the pattern!!! Very original with that little car fabric!
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.)
I think dresses and sneakers look good on everyone. Give it a shot, you might be surprised … 🙂
Sweet! Love the shape, love the cars…love!
The problem with these 100 dresses is that I just want to comment “perfect dress, perfect fabric” on pretty much all of them! Loving this!
