Waiting to get sewing... wanting to get sewing...

I've no time though! A 2.5 hour commute is taking up every available hour, and when I return home, I'm just too exhausted to sew. (July 1st - hopefully, new apartment - will solve this.)

As a result, all I've managed to do in two weeks is make one dress. I used my yellow, grey and white knit to make Simplicity 4074. I was going to make a BWOF, but got too lazy to trace. Plus, I'd made Simplicity 4074 before, and it was all cut out and ready to go.

Again, I like but don't love this dress, and since I've felt like this twice, its the pattern. It might look better with a belt, though.



Question - can I wear this to work? I work in a business casual office. Could I get away with this on a Friday? Please weigh in... (Also, if it doesn't fit, looks strange, etc, please weigh in...)

I like it! I think a belt will sharpen up the look, you'll probably feel better about wearing it to work then.

I totally think you can wear this to work. maybe start with a black jacket & shoes with it till you feel braver!
It's a great print and I love those colours.

You could totally wear this to work. With some flats and a belt it would still look very casual.

Yes, wear to to work with black accessories! If your office is cool, a little black sweater wouldn't hurt, either.

The dress looks very classy as is, but as everyone else says, you could make it more formal with a jacket and belt, it would be great for work.

am catching up on blogs (we're in nova scotia now with wireless access)- love the dress and I think it's great for dressy casual as is. uh, so long as you don't go barefoot. :)

Wear with knee-high black boots! And two other black things, such as a sweater, belt, scarf, bangles, whatever.
