The Hundred Dresses: Day 85

I had really, really high hopes for this Vogue 9670:

I love the stripes on this fabric — and I matched them (on the front at least) pretty well:

I like the offset stripes of the neck facing:

The back stripes don’t match so much:

Unfortunately this dress is SUPERWRINKLY. I don’t usually care about wrinkles, but after three minutes in this dress you look like you’ve been hiding under the sink for three hours. It looked like this less than five minutes after ironing, only from the exertion of getting it on the dress form:

So I ended up not wearing it that often, and on one of the rare occasions when I did wear it, I also managed to rip it under the arm and I don’t think it’s easily fixable:

More photos on the original post, when I was still full of hope for this one. Oh well, good thing there’s plenty of fabric in the world, huh?
