Fraternal Twin Myrtles

Myrtle is easy to like. She’s drapey and flowy and cool with pockets and now she’s longer than ever.  These two were made about a month apart and both are made of rayon challis.  I’m not sure why it never occurred to be previously to make a Myrtle Maxi dress.  Perhaps it was just the fun of making knit and woven options.  The above version has dots in purple, deep burgundy, brown and white, as well as silver glittery bits that only show a bit when you move.  Those glitter spots would be what make me look like I have white lint on me in the seated picture above.  This was sewn during the Sewcialist match the Sewcialists Logo MiniChallenge for the color black.

If you wear dresses all of the time it can be hard to distinguish between casual and semi formal.  This dress fits perfectly into that category because of the black base color and the sparkle.  While the bright floral below is maintains a far more casual air.  This pure comfort with shaving optional is hard to “keep for good” as I’d like to live in them all summer.

Here she is in action out in the world.
