Plaid dress inspiration - Oscar de la Renta

See! It didn't take me long to salivate on a dress I want to make later!

I came across this OSCAR DE LA RENTA Asymmetric Fringed Checked Cotton-Blend Tweed Midi Dress while surfing. I love plaid and love these asymmetric things:

The good thing about making this dress is that one doesn't really match the plaid (because I'm lazy and because I hate wasting fabric when having to match the pattern). But where would one go with this dress? It's not really for the office (too on-trend to be taken seriously). And it's too casual for a special occasion. Perhaps I could make the asymmetric skirt less flappy so that it can be for daily use?

    1. I think if I make the wrap over piece less drastic, it could be worn as a daily dress.

  2. Yes, this is lovely, so you must wear it as a day dress. I think it would also work for a weekend dress if you are going somewhere. Good luck...

  3. That is gorgeous - I agree, with less of an over piece, it will be more wearable. This is a problem I have a lot of the time - the pieces I like are not things I ever have occasion to wear. Adjusting or altering them is something I need to keep in mind!

    1. I think so too. Just make the bias piece less exaggerated and one gets a nice day wear dress.
