Dresses: Day 83

This is , a peach of a dress if ever there were one:

I made this ┬áSeriously, it was so long ago that the return address on all my letters was “123 Main Street, Pangaea.”

I don’t think when I made this I really did it justice — the neck yoke is decidedly lopsided:

But I really, really love the fabric. It’s so … Lois Lenski, if that makes any sense.

The back view is … lacking:

I did not do a very good job on the back neck zipper, to put it mildly:

This is another dress I don’t wear very often but can’t seem to get rid of, mostly because I love the fabric so much. Why I think that at some point in the future I will magically find either the time or the ingenuity to change this dress into something else, I don’t know. Perhaps if I were the victim of a shrinking ray, and had to create an entirely new wardrobe of doll-sized clothes? (Because even if a shrinking ray made me Barbie-sized, it would not make me Barbie-proportioned …) Maybe when we have the Star Trek replicators and I can put a snippet of this fabric in one and intone “Dress, full skirt, hat” at it and have a new version in a snap? Both are more plausible than me sitting down and taking this one apart ….
