My younger kids were out of school this week for Spring Break, so we decided to hit the road and spend a few days in Chicago. While walking the Mag Mile Wednesday night, I was drawn by the color combination in this Michael Kors window display at Bloomingdale's.
I thought the color-blocked trousers were interesting, but I found myself really attracted to this yellow sheath dress. It appears deceptively simple, as I know the details are in its fabric selection and tailoring. After returning to my hotel, I read Erica Bunker's blog post on daffodil which prompted me to take another look at this sheath.
I really began falling in love with the color and the button/chain detail and wanted to learn more about the dress, so I went to Michael Kors online store. It's made of a wool/spandex crepe (side note - who would have thought that spandex would make it to haute couture?) and retails for $1.495.00.
Here's a closer view of the dress's front and back.
When I return home, the search will be on to find a pattern with design lines similar to the Michael Kors sheath. Who knows? I may already have one that will serve perfectly. Thanks for taking time to read my post and please leave comments below - especially if you have a pattern suggestion.
