I'll call this the DKNY "trifecta". I'll be bringing each of these home!
I love this Kay Unger dress. It can be made in a stretch woven or a knit. That's a plus! So can the Mark & James jumpsuit. I think I'll make mine in a matte jersey. In the summertime, wash and go is ALWAYS winner! And the Alice + Olivia off-the-shoulder top is pretty great too.
I'm usually not a fan of Issey Miyake designs as they sometime seem too "avant-garde" for my taste. But this dress looks so cool and breezy and I would dress it down with casual sandals. I also like the Guy Laroche. I've been looking for a shirt dress pattern that was not so standard. And CHADO Ralph Rucci fits the bill. I'm sure there will be fabulous construction techniques as well.
That's a lot of fabric in that skirt. In fact, it's 3.5 yards! I definitely don't want to drag that around this summer. But I adore the top with the buttons down the back. 8739 is another great sheath dress to add to my collection. And 8738 is a great sweat pants/yoga pants alternative.
