But I saw a mom in my son's preschool class wearing an amazing embroidered dress the other day. It was a really simple jersey dress, but it had embroidery all down the hip and on the back. It looked very expensive, but as I was studying it, I realized it would be really simple to replicate. And then I had to stop staring at it, because the woman was probably getting the wrong idea!
The dress in question was actually a wintry dress, and so I decided to do something more summery (although, lord knows, summery weather has not made much of an appearance here yet). I modified the Jalie dress pattern so that it has an underskirt, and used some of my bamboo jersey.
I was so happy with the end result until I put it on and had my husband take pictures. Ugh! I'm so lumpy! Well, I may have to give this dress away to someone who has not had three children, but overall I do like it. And the bamboo is so soft and divine - it is a supremely comfortable dress, if nothing else!
