wear your style Friday: Jeanne’s Diplomat Dress

You know I always love Jeanne’s style, and she’s back this week (and maybe for the next several weeks because she’s been sewing up a storm!) with some great wear your style photos for you.



Here’s what she has to say about this one:

I adore the simple clean lines of the Diplomat Dress.  Given its vintage-inspired silhouette and appealing updated look, I was thrilled to get to work on sewing this dress.  I choose to make the mini-dress (View C) with the ¾ sleeves using a bold print by Lotta Jansdotter.  I was a bit hesitant of using this fabric given the scale of the print, but even though the pattern on the fabric doesn’t match up exactly at the center seam, I love the result.

This has become my go-to-party dress.  I’ve already worn it to a number of evening work-related events, receptions, and parties. Every time I wear it, I receive lovely compliments since it is the most flattering dress I have currently hanging in my closet.
