In fact, this was meant to be my holiday dress… but then I ended up going with something more casual on the day. I did have a delightfully girly moment of having my sister and our friend both try it on during family Christmas, and now we know it fits us all!
To be honest, I’m torn about this dress. I made it two months ago and haven’t worn it yet! Here’s why:
- CON: The fabric was quite stable, which resulted in a neckband that doesn’t hug the body as nicely as my jersey versions.
- PRO: I can always wear a camisole underneath!
- CON: The print ends up making it feel less va-va-voom than my inspiration dresses, but because it’s a fitted velvet dress, it feels a bit over the top for a work day!
- PRO: Maybe the #CashmeretteChallenge will make me find a way to wear it, as I run out of other options?
I’m game for any styling ideas you have – how do I dress it down for everyday wear? Or should I just enjoy it as an addition to my “fancy knit dress” collection for next holiday season?
