Oh what a dilemma! It's too darned cold to think about summer dresses! (I just sneezed.. how appropriate was that timing!)
So lovely ladies of the southern hemisphere...I ask you... are you planning to 'bend the rules' this week?
My ideas so far..
The perfect 'transeasonal dress' - which would probably really be a summer dress worn with tights and turtleneck. lol.
A summer dress in a winter fabric... worn with tights and a turtleneck. (I completely planned to do this with the colette parfait - in cord.. just like Debi's... but alas it will be weeks before my pattern arrives!)
The perfect winter dress - I mean if you're gonna bend the rules.. why not just do the complete opposite... right?
or.. to heck with the challenge this week and whip out a UFO instead.
Hey Debbie, I don't care for it either. I'm from Los Angeles and have had a mild climate most of my life. My career took me to Minnesota and I have to say wowza I have never been so cold in my life. I have just survived my 6th winter here! Key word here is survived!
Not hard to please at all, you are smart! And apparently warm!
I'm hearing you! It's been so cold this winter!
I often use a sleeved summer dress pattern and just make it out of a slightly warmer material. And then layer, layer, layer!
