Gathered Hemlock dress, and I've had my eye on it for a while now. And last night I was browsing around an online fabric shop, and what did I find? The very fabric! For $15 a yard, which seems pretty reasonable to me. (Though I know my standards are warped from living in New York and having champagne taste in fabric.) At any rate, the dress itself is $148.
Readers, I bought some yardage. (You can too! The owner of Emma One Sock let me know right away that while the fabric is currently out of stock, she's expecting more in on Monday.) I have a project on the horizon that it could work nicely for. And, if not, I'd love to make a simple sheath out of it. McCalls 6282, for instance:
One drawback: Jeff does NOT like the print. To be clear, he doesn't hate it. He just thinks it's "a little much." I guess it's a bit louder and splashier than what I normally wear, and I can see how it's not for everyone. I usually listen very closely to Jeff's style advice. He has a great eye. But I decided to go rogue on this one and ignore him. I just love that happy print! What do you think? Are you Team Gertie or Team Jeff on this very important matter?
