The Hundred Dresses: Day 16

Here’s another version of the W3 dress:

It is surprisingly hard to tell the back from the front with this dress pattern (and this print!) but here is what I am pretty sure is the back:

I made this dress in an extreme hurry because I had gotten it into my head that I needed a slightly vintagey, yet cool and comfortable dress to go out dancing in one Saturday night. I got this idea about  4 pm, and the dancing started around 9. So it was a bit of a rush job, as you can see by the not-quite-matching of the print at the waist, here:

That shoulder pleat, though, I’m still really liking it:

Side zip? B+ this time.

Oh, and a sneak preview of a dress (or two) that’s coming next week, as it was hanging in my hotel room waiting to be hemmed:

  1. You are such a lucky girl! I wish we had a club around here that would do something like that. Who am I kidding? I wish my husband would take me dancing at all!


  2. tell me you danced the polka wearing it!

    speed sewing. confident sewing. make a dress and wear it that night – you are a marvel.


  3. Haha, I thought I was the only person in the world who packed unhemmed garments for travel. Obviously I am in excellent company! Last year on the way to a job fair at a conference I hemmed my interview dress on the plane. Ahem. (And for the record, I got a job!)


  4. What fun, Erin! I just caught back up with the blogs I like to read only to find you doing “The Hundred Dresses.” Inspirational, impressive, and fun. What more could we want?
