So, I made another version of Vogue 8939. Yes, I love the simplicity of this pattern just that much. And I wore it out last night.
This time I used a sweatshirt-like heathered gray jersey knit from Mood Fabrics.
For this version, I only added 3 inches to the length -- so that it would be the length (on me) that it was designed to be.
And I used a mock turtleneck because this fabric is THICK.
And I added a zipper because I didn't feel that the fabric had enough give to be a pullover. Have you ever struggled to get into a tight turtleneck? Yeah... I didn't want to deal with that. So I made sure my I could get in and out of the dress. Nothing like having to pull something over your head and wiping off all of your makeup in the process!
So last night, I wore this to a Rebecca Minkoff event hosted by the Contemporary department at Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham.
These are some of my favorite pieces for Spring. I fell in love with the bright orange suede moto jacket in Rebecca's signature style. Isn't it fabulous?
Here are more pieces that I love. Rebecca's "Downtown Girl" style really plays to my own aesthetic.
Mikaela came along with me. And we did our obligatory selfie! It was a fun, mother-daughter time! And don't be surprised if you see at least one more version of this dress. I just can't get enough of it!
