The Hundred Dresses: Day 11

You’ve seen this fox dress before, but here it is again, in more close-up detail:

quizzical fox in the pocket:

and the back:

and the matching Tattly:

The fabric is called Fox Frolic (by Aneela Hoey for Moda).

I really liked this fabric when I first made the dress, and I still like the dress now, but I am thinking foxes are getting, as the kids say today, played out. (There’s a LOT of fox stuff on Etsy, which is always the first sign.) Besides, you know I have to declare my allegiance to the hedgehog side

Oh! And if you’re wondering which of the book-Hundred-Dresses this eleventh dress would be, it’s Matt Smith! Wait, no, I mean, it’s a Dirndl, about which I say: “The Dirndl managed to be simultaneously practical and attractive. It’s close-fitting, but the deep armholes and free skirt allow for easy movement.”

And! Antipodean friends, the book was reviewed in the Sydney Morning Herald today!

  1. darn, I’m culturally bankrupt.

    Moda fabric for dresses – how does it rate for weight and creases?


  2. I LOVE this material (and dress). I think I’d really like to have a good look in your closet- you are so original and stylish- I’d like to spend a day looking at all your lovely dresses.
