work clothes

October 19, 2014

Sometimes new jobs need new clothes. I just had one of those changes, and have been working on making a new wardrobe of dresses. The designs are simple, easy to wear, and easy to move around in. I like to think of them as sack dresses that fit well enough.

 The attention is to the simple details. An extra line of stitching, some gathers, a neat and tidy corner…

They are meant to change a little with time. No interfacing to keep thing stiff and held together. I like to think of the dresses as little creatures, moving and adjusting to the new wearer.
