Anthropologizing Jo-Ann's: Sugar-Coated

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

I haven't gotten so excited about a dress since I first saw the Sugar-Coated Dress at Anthropologie last fall, nor has any other dress from Anthro fit me so poorly, so unfortunately, it never left the store with me. I originally intended to create a fall version more like the original, but didn't find similar fabric until spring rolled around, so I shortened the sleeves to make it more appropriate for a summer shirtdress.

  7. Ah, yes -- I remember loving this dress when you made it. And I just realized that you also changed the neckline. I like your version much better, as it seems a bit more modest. I think I would feel the need to wear a cami under Anthro's version (and who wants to layer a cami under a dress in the height of summer!)

    Love all the taupe accessories you've paired this with!

  10. That is beautiful!!! I love me an anthropologie knockoff. Now,if I could just find similar fabric for the green version of the Verdant Slip Dress, I would be in heaven.

  19. That dress is hands-down pure perfection! Great job - you are so talented. What kind of material did you use to make it? The shorter sleeves are definitely more flattering.

  22. Oh wow! So pretty! I like yours better actually. The sleeves on the Anthro version would irritate me I think at that length, and I like how your neckline is higher too. I hate when I have no choice in how much chest I expose! :)
    Great job!! Did you use a pattern or just make it up?
