The Hundred Dresses: Day 18

Here’s today’s dress:

This is another collarless simplicity 1577 — when I had to do the collar amputation on the denim one, I thought, “Hey, what if I did this on purpose?” and voilà:

The bias binding for the neckline is a small bit lumpy. The fabric is a lighter twill, so it showed through much more than I thought it would (better image of the fabric below). I’m very pleased with the pocket lining (it’s Liberty, natch):

Here’s the back where you can see exactly the spot I missed while pressing this before taking pictures:

And the zipper, which is really terrible, a C- at best. For some reason this dress came out smaller than I thought it would so I have to go back and undo both side seams and cheat them out a bit, and do the zipper “right” in the process. Needless to say this has not happened yet. At all.

I tend to wear this dress in the winter season (it’s warm) with black boots and a black sweater (or brown boots and a brown sweater). It’s a good traveling dress, too, because I made the pockets extra-deep. now if only I managed to get this on to the top of the pile for repairing …
