This dress was made before all the laziness of winter and a sea of blue scrubs set in. But the photos which were taken yesterday have been a real struggle, I was too lazy to find my stockings, yet another benefit of scrubs, no stockings needed and it was freezing.
The dress was made from Honig Design's free garden party dress, a split front dress with pleat skirt details. I would definitely recommend the pattern. I love the triple pleats on the skirt, which are actually more tucks. But gorgeous all the same, not too poofy (?puffy), but gives the dress the fit and flare shape I love.
I had to skinny-ify the sleeves and had trouble setting them in so they sit a bit awkwardly, but that was more due to my trying to alter them on my dress model who has no arms.
As per usual I also added in pockets, because what is a work dress without pockets? I also raise the front slit to a more modest area for work purposes.
If you need inspiration, there are a bunch of versions of the garden party dress found here. The dress has a great basic shape and I will definitely be using it in the future.
