(Orla Kiely dress Winter 2011/2012 collection; Sunni's incomparable dress; a crinkly textured masculine plaid that I found in the sale section at Stonemountain & Daughter's; and what I believe to be an Isaac Mizrahi dress that I found off the Dress A Day website possibly circa 2007?)
Basically, Sunni's standing collar + the gigantic sleeve bows + Orla Kiely's shirtdress top with boxpleat skirt + masculine plaid = my next project. I've had it 90% cut out for a week and a half but was stalled on the actual stitching. We'll see how long this takes me. Long, I'm guessing. It's a frankenpattern/guessing at dimensions project with lots of detailing, and we know how I like to plod through my details! In my brain though, it's really going to work. Fingers crossed.
