If you've been poking around here for a while, you know one of my favorite dresses is the Soda Fountain Dress in ginger from ModCloth.
When I first posted about the dress, I commented on it needing starch since it gets wrinkled easily. That's an easy enough fix. A mere month after that I accidentally ripped the little capped sleeve while reaching to open the passenger side door. I can't sew to save my life so I had it patched up at the tailor. That didn't hold. A seam ripper mistake and tailor visit later, this is what I got:
Oops! My slip is showing!
I quite like it this way. It reminds of the first sleeveless shirtwaist I saw: Doris Day's in the market scene of The Man Who Knew Too Much.
