Goodness, how amazing does Jordin Sparks look here? Ignoring the fact that I desperately want to push her hair back so I can see her neckline, there's a lot to love about this dress: the simplicity, the vaguely retro wiggle shape, and the fact that it looks like a comfy knit. Wouldn't something like this be fun to sew in a jewel-toned doubleknit? Or maybe a lovely thick wool jersey? I would love it with a just-below-knee length skirt and shorter cap sleeves.
It's hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like the dress may have some interesting diagonal seaming. It reminds me a bit of this Butterick pattern:
I didn't love this pattern when it was first released, but now I see how it could be a nice wardrobe staple that I could adjust to my style with a few tweaks. What do you think: yea or nay?
