Dresses in Literature: Sewing Instructions Edition


The woman had a dress
Of Turkish cloth
And her tunic with a border of gold
Was made of two panels
Attached to each other at the shoulder

Her eyes were dancing like those of angels
She was laughing and laughing
She had a face with the colors of France

Apollinaire, Guillaume. "1909." (from The Columbia Granger's World of Poetry. July 11, 2005. http://www.columbiagrangers.org.)

[There will be more contest runners-up soon; I'm waiting for permissions to link to some of the pictures that were sent.]
