I did some more selfish sewing last week. A dress, to be precise. I'm a huge fan of Boden, I think they have very cute stuff, but I'm not a fan of their prices. I really liked this corduroy dress, but that's something that is so doable. So I did!
I had this corduroy that was sitting in my stash. I was undecided what to do with it, thinking about a skirt. But after my Washi tunic turned out so well, I wanted to try the dress version. I did modfy it a bit, the skirt was a bit too full for my taste. I took away about 1.5 inches of fabric on each side. The sleeves are from the Tova pattern, I had that pattern out and it was a perfect fit for the Washi, no modifications needed. I was a bit skeptical about the cutout on the bodice, but that was actually no problem at all.
Here's a closer look at the fabric:

Together with dark brown boots, it's another nice outfit for fall.
I hope you have a good, sunny start of the week!
