So, while sick one week, I had a Scandal marathon. Totally fell in love with Kerry Washington. Internet sleuthing lead me to this dress she wore on Oprah.
It's by Shoshanna.
Don't know if you know this about me, but I rarely do blue unless it's denim or its breezy friend, chambray. And I don't do wovens at the moment. And red makes me so happy. So you see where this lead me: a striped, red knit dress, inspired by the Shoshanna dress above.
This is a frankenpattern: the neckline and sleeves are the Sewaholic Renfrew, the bodice shape is from the Sew U Homestretch dress (+ I drafted the waistband), and the skirt is Lisette's Passport dress. I had a lot of fun with the stripes.
This might be one of my proudest makes. I want to live in knit dresses. I can already think of variations to come.
