Week in Feminine Dress -- Wednesday
This will (hopefully) be one of the last days that I work on these uniforms! Fortunately, the ladies are very happy with them so far, and I'm hoping that once they see them completely finished they'll be satisfied with them!
So, since these dresses are taking up so much of my time, I decided to get my photo for today while ironing one of them!
Today I'm wearing a black gingham stretchy blouse from Jonathan Martin, with my absolute favorite skirt of all time -- a black "stretchy" skirt by Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti. I decided to look up the brand the other day, and discovered that Alberta Ferretti is a designer whose clothing sells for over $400! I picked up my skirt at a charity shop several years ago for under $5...
You can't see the details in the picture, but there are two sets of pintucks in the front (and one in the back) that go from the waist to the hem -- four pintucks in each set. At the waist,the pintucks are "mock smocked." There's a narrow ruffle at the bottom, too! It's incredibly comfortable.
Tomorrow I have violin lessons, so I get to find something "teacherish" to wear!
