Have you been over to Modcloth lately? If you haven't, I suggest you grab a roll of paper towels ( you'll need those to wipe up the drool) and a bottle of vodka*, and head on over there to check out the to die for collection of dresses that they sell. (* You're going to need to vodka to self medicate after you realize you don't have an extra ten grand laying around to order one of everything.) I seem to love almost every single dress that they feature. Some of a bit more modern, with an 80's flair, while some are super cute retro inspired dresses that are totally wearable. Each time I click over there I end up saving what seems like a bagillion things to my "clipboard" in Polyvore. Just for the record, I have not actually bought anything from their website. Most of the dresses are in the $75 plus range, and I am a complete cheapskate, and some of the styles are a bit short for my taste.
Over the weekend I finally cut out some fabric to be made into my first Modcloth inspired dress. The dress is still listed here on their website though it appears to be sold out. It originally retailed for $98.
I am already planning my next Modloth knockoff and I have yet to even put a single stitch into my first one. I am an over planner, so what can I say? This is such a cute and modern looking shirtdress. I am pretty sure that one of the new Lisette patterns has the perfect short sleeve shirtdress pattern to recreate the look. I will add that to my already filled to the brim and exploding to do (eventually) list.
P.S. I should have a new skirt to show you all tomorrow!
