I love this shirt dress! ModCloth does such a cool job of naming their clothing, giving you the feeling that you know JUST where and how to wear the piece before you even have it in your hands. They create a whole mood, which I’m really drawn to.
“Do you know how many people will want to join your friend network when they get a taste of your amicable personality and super style, as highlighted by this off-white babydoll dress from French designer 2Two? Pretty much everyone! Your charm will shine resplendently through this frock’s freckled stripes, cuff-ready sleeves, cleverly piped front, and buttoned placket and collar. So, connect it with a vintage slip, thigh-high ribbed socks, and whiskey brown booties, and you’ll find your inbox brimming with friend requests”
I love the fabric on this one, as well as the rounded hem and little details.

Very unique and sloppy chic!

This one is from yesterday, but I didn’t see it, so it’s going here. It’s a little over frilly for me, but would be cute with the right pairing.

Here’s a drawing from a 1940’s sewing pattern with dolman sleeves. It seems that we’ve made them a bit more dramatic since then……
And…… Ah-Ha!!!!! When I was looking for the 40’s version of a dolman sleeve, I found THESE……turns out I was right when they reminded me of the 80’s. haha! These are both sewing patterns from that decade.
A photo of the back because I think it looks cool. 😉
