the amazing technicolor dream...dress

i have had this insane fabric sitting around for probably 2 years now.  i had no idea what to do with it or why i even bought it.  thanks for tempting my sometimes overly impulsive purchasing habits.

same new look pattern as the prior dress but only for the bodice.  i attempted some slight resizing [fail] and instead of sleeves i added quadruple straps.  the back is partially open [giant button and 7" zipper instead of 22"] cos apparently this summer in maine has been declared "hot as balls" pretty much daily. 
with the remaining fabric [there were probably 2 yards to start with] i made a hybrid circle/fishtail skirt which i do believe turned out surprisingly well.
i guess the only issue now is... where in the hell would i ever wear this dress?  in my future career as a construction site flagger?  when i audition for clown college?  perhaps in a test for genetically inherited colorblindness?  cohosting reading rainbow?  signaling airplanes on the tarmac?  making up implausible scenarios the host of a children's show?
ever so slightly toned down with a belt and blazer..


  1. Summer picnic fun! Or if you insist on adding this to your work wardrobe, hehehe, maybe Friday casual?

    oh my god, that fabric is THE BEST! You could wear it on a night out, no? I would!

  3. hahha i dont know that this dress will be worn to work anytime soon.. perhaps if we change from casual to crazy fridays!

  4. in trying to think of an evening event i would wear the dress to.. all i can come up with is some kind of outdoor hippie fest. now if only woodstock were being held again.

  5. wow. that is...something.
