This is one of those Issey Miyake Vogue patterns that I made a few years ago. The envelope said "Easy", but my memories of it involve my mother telling me that she would never again help me with another pattern if it was somehow related to Issey Miyake. The snap fasteners I remember being a particular nightmare. The dress is pretty wrinkled (as seen in the above picture), as it has been sitting in a box for who knows how long. The blue shirt I'm wearing underneath is from The Gap. I bought it a couple of months ago at their outlet store because it is an amazing blue which is not translating very well in these pictures. The shirt itself is not all that great. It has rolled hems at the neckline, the sleeves and the waist which to my mind makes it look a little sloppy and too casual if I wear it with, say jeans. (The shoes, by the way, are my everyday black Campers)
