Honig Garden Party Dress


I love scrubs. I love not having to think what to wear in the morning/afternoon/night time. I love wearing my comfy memory foam runners to work and not being judged for it. And thus my drive to sew work clothes (and really any clothes) has steadily declined with no place to wear them, and the idea of having to forsake my blanket fort on the couch for the sewing machine just seems to hard. Damn you winter.



This dress was made before all the laziness of winter and a sea of blue scrubs set in. But the photos which were taken yesterday have been a real struggle, I was too lazy to find my stockings, yet another benefit of scrubs, no stockings needed and it was freezing.



The dress was made from Honig Design's free garden party dress, a split front dress with pleat skirt details. I would definitely recommend the pattern. I love the triple pleats on the skirt, which are actually more tucks. But gorgeous all the same, not too poofy (?puffy), but gives the dress the fit and flare shape I love. 





I had to skinny-ify the sleeves and had trouble setting them in so they sit a bit awkwardly, but that was more due to my trying to alter them on my dress model who has no arms. 



As per usual I also added in pockets, because what is a work dress without pockets? I also raise the front slit to a more modest area for work purposes. 




If you need inspiration, there are a bunch of versions of the garden party dress found here. The dress has a great basic shape and I will definitely be using it in the future.



Happy Crafting!
