Here I am, looking very matter-of-fact in my second version of BWOF 10-2008-115. This was cut and sewn in one evening.
Wool jersey from Textile Studio, purchased during PR Day in Seattle on Monday. I strayed from my typical neutral color comfort zone with this great orange-y red.
What I did different this time
As drafted, the dress hem hit me just below the knee. It didn't look great with the knee high boots I wear all winter, so I chopped ~5" off the hem (I ended up shortening my first dress also).
I stitched the center front seam about 1" higher for a little more cleavage coverage.
I probably won't make another dress like this, but never say never...
