Blue Deer & Doe Reglisse dress

I haven’t posted anything here for a very long time so the pictures you are about to see were taken a couple of months ago – which explains the snow left on the ground…

Now that New York summer has truly kicked in it feels like a lifetime ago.


I made the Deer and Doe Reglisse dress in a peachy-feeling polyester that I got from the garment district. Although I love the D&D patterns – I have made a few now – my measurements do not correspond to the standards of the brand so I have to play around a little. I am a size 36 except for the waist which is a 38. Since the dress has an elastic waist I just cut a 36 but it was a little too tight and hard to slip on so I widened it a little. If I make it again I will need to modify the pattern slightly so that the waist is a 38.


It was still spring so I was wearing a few more layers…

I love the details in this dress – especially the shoulders. I think I must have done something wrong with the neck line though because it doesn’t quite sit the way I would like it to but I don’t think it’s too noticeable.


I love this dress! It is so feminine and well cut. I can’t help it but twirl every time I wear it. In New York City this is actually not the most practical. I have had a few Marilyn Monroe/embarrassing moments…
