The Long and Short of it...
...and in between. When you love a silhouette (like Angelie in particular), you rock it in every colour and length and the beauty of it is that when you Rock the Cloth, you can afford to do just that. This week we feature a dress, which, as it turns out, can also be worn as a blouse and rocks beautifully in every length.
To make the blouse is so simple, even a beginner can do it:
1. Cut the fabric the width of your hip and the length from your shoulder to desired mini length.
2. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise, right sides facing in and stitch 16 inches up from the bottom.
3. Hem the top and bottom of dress.
4. Cut a thin string for neckline and string through the top hem. This creates the gathers and ties at the neck.
Look 1 is the long of it. The dress worn as a blouse with a flowing long skirt.
Look 2 is the short of it.
Look 3 shows the in between of the look. Sydia wears the dress as a blouse and belted with a midi skirt. "Midi" being in between mini and maxi length. Brown shoes and accessories complete the look.
Look 4 shows the plunging back view of the dress.
