My chiropractor used to call me Librarian by Day, which I guess implied that I was something more fun and edgy by night. I wore thick rimmed glasses but was not conservative at all, dress wise. On a side note by chiropractor looked exactly like young skinny Alec Baldwin and I sometimes just wandered into his office for a hug. His office was in the base of the building I worked in. Ahh, the good old days.
But I digress.....Oddly, at the same time I discovered this fact, I made another of this dress: Vogue 2019 in a deep green color to be worn with my camel cashmere cardigan, nude pumps and pearls. Kind of a work outfit, demure in a Mad Men kinda way. Call me Joan. Just a little different from my own librarian days.
This is such a fast dress to make, I cut and sewed it in an evening and then finished the sleeves and hems the next night. I could have done it all in one night but I think I didn't start till 8pm and I didn't want to push it.
|Dress form just doesn't have the hips and chest I do to make this more Joanish.|
Here it is with the whole outfit.
|PS; My sister has absconded with my iron to do a Christmas project. I need that back, clearly.|
