No Gatsby for us this year, as it was the same weekend as the Cal Meelee. I thought this might work as a future Gatsby dress. (Why oh why won't I just buy a fricken 30s pattern like a normal person?) I'd have to make it a bit longer, of course, and do a little tailoring as its a bit 80s/baggy. But I like the collar and the buttons down the side.

Ignore the boring "lady on a cruise" styling on the envelope and focus on the cuteness of the sarong skirt. Also, this was from the thrift store (uncut!) for 69 cents and therefore totally irresistable.

I don't care if its 1980s "power work-wear". Its also the sexiest dress EVER.
Unfortunately in my excitement (thrift store, uncut, 69 cents) I did not notice that the instructions are in French. I do not speak ze French. Sacre bleu!
