Certain garments get lost in the back of the closet for a couple of years, even though I really love them. This is one of the main reasons I do not subscribe to the notion of tossing clothing that has not been worn in a year or two. Well, that, and the majority of my closet looks like it is over fifty years out of date – if you are never “in style” there is really not much reason to unload things that you love, even if they are neglected for a while.
This particular dress was made in 2007 (note to self: I should really start marking dates directly on my pattern envelopes again). Not only is it easy and comfortable to wear, it is fun to see how far my sewing has come in the past seven years.
And another thing . . . I am easily distracted by the pretty vintage reproductions and designer Vogue offerings, but the Vogue Easy Options line has some hidden gems.
I may just have to make myself another wrap dress . . . yikes, that mental project list is getting out of hand!
