So I made yet another Kwik Sew 3559 yoked jersey dress. This is the first one I've done with the short sleeves. Perfect to throw on on the summer weekends. I can even bike in it!
In this version, I raised the yoke a little over an inch. I'd noticed in the long sleeve versions that I made the the yoke looked a little low (the yoke had to be below the sleeve. Otherwise, the yoke seem would have continued all the way down the sleeve).
I love this colour! I've also been experimenting with a bright lipstick, something I've always shied away from because I think it looks weird on me. I'm still getting used to it and I'm not sure how I feel about it.
This fabric is a rayon (I think) jersey from Emmaonesock. It's wonderfully drapey. It made it a bit tricky to sew but I really like the way it feels. This dress is like wearing pajamas!
Lately I've become more conscious of protecting my skin from the sun. (I had a big birthday this year. Can you guess which one?)
I've started wearing this gigantic hat. Not only is it glamorous, but it creates a lot of shade!
