More Cosmopolitan


Here's another version of the Cosmopolitan Dress. This version is the scoop neck. I raised the neckline 1 1/2 inches, and it's still low! The skirt is longer, almost ankle length. I used a rayon lycra fabric from Christine Jonson. Hems are edge-serged.

Notice the shoes? No matter how much I want these to wear out, they won't. And they fit so well and are so comfortable, I can't get rid of them. Those are over 10 years old. Donald Pliner, bought on impulse back in summer, 2000. I just had the elastic connector at the buckle replaced on both ankle straps, and like it or not, it looks like I might get another 10 years out of these things!

Really beautiful! I'm just starting to play with my serger and I love to hear different ways to use it, I like the simplicity of the serger edged hems.

Beautiful dress, Barbara!

I have the same fabric and have never figured out what to make with it. You paired it well as the Cosmopolitan dress.

Hi - Great blog i really enjoyed reading and looking at the beautifull pictures , Fashion is always cyclical in nature, with the trends repeating every now and then. What was hot once before, gets replaced by new trends. Old ones are being quickly forgotten only to return back.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
