On a recent excursion to Target, I found this black dress:
I loved, loved LOVED wearing it! It was flirty just below the knee and was so comfortable. It just reminded me of a 1950's shirtwaist dress. So, I just had to get a pattern for it! I found this McCall's pattern:
It doesn't have the tucks like the Target dress (which wouldn't be too difficult to modify), but I absolutely love that it will fit my needs. I bought a piece of linen in a celadon color and can't wait to sew it up!
