Blue Skies, Blue Dress

Have you ever loved a clothing item so much that you wished you had a hundred of them? That was the way I felt when I bought the most comfortable sleeveless shift dress from a local thrift store last year. So of course, I proceeded to make a new one (with sleeves) last weekend because I can! 🙂

It turned out great! However, on my next shift dress, I’ll need to figure out how to get a better fit in the neckline area. I paired it with a simple sleeveless black vest which showed off those gorgeous sleeves. It was a beautiful day so there was no need to wear a jacket.

The original dress I copied this from (not pictured) is sleeveless but I decided to add some trendy sleeves to this one because why not? I’m actually working on another one right now with different sleeves.

The fabric I used for this project is a linen viscose. This was my first time using this type of fabric but it will definitely not be my last. I loved working with it and I love the way it holds it’s shape without being overly stiff either. The print is also gorgeous and says spring without screaming spring (get it?)
