I admit it. This dress pushed all my buttons, right to the point where I pushed the "Buy It Now" button (from ). Collar? Check. Sleeves other than set-in? Check. Hip pockets? Insouciant hat on the pattern envelope? Check and check.
The kicker? Showing it in that green tweed. Do they even make nice green tweed anymore? I never see any. Which is a shame, because I have some buttons that would go really well with it … might even have a matching belt buckle, too.
This below is one that I didn't buy, although — see? the green? — it was very tempting. I just know that I've reached my quota for a while on interesting neckline patterns. The sad truth is that a lot of them I'm just too lazy to sew … but if you have a bit more gumption, go to it! It's only $7.50!
