|I thought for a while that my hair was going crazy, but it appears that I actually just have a tree growing out of my head.|
The pattern is Butterick 6582, which I have used previously (but apparently never blogged about). It's very comfortable and fits well. The pattern has a slim pencil skirt option as well; I made that version last time I used the pattern.
The weather was utterly gorgeous -- crisp but warm enough that I was comfortable in a light sweater as long as I kept moving. There was a glorious sun and quite a brisk wind.
The dress is made of black dupioni silk, which I bought at Hancocks Fabric last summer. The bodice neckline and arm openings are self-faced, and the dress is unlined.
It weighs absolutely nothing and moves like a dream.
I want several of these in lightweight floral prints for summer! So easy to wear and the skirt has such lovely movement.
