Day or evening....?

I found a cute pattern I thought would make a very nice summer dress. It was flowing and loose with an interesting inset and cute sleeves that reminded me of butterflies.

And here is my version. I am in love with this dark green olive color. ( I will explain the cop out of the dress form picture)

My issue is.... it kind of looks like a night gown, right?

I am all for the granny look, but I feel like this dress can only be accessorized with foam rollers and a pair of marabou slippers (cigarette optional of course). I think with the sash it could be a cute it's-really-too-hot-to-wear-clothes dress for July and August.

Should I throw out my sweats and wear this for pj's? Or can this be worn out during the day (sans curlers)? Perhaps shorter?

Let me know if I should hem it, pitch it or relegate it to the bedroom....

  1. I think it is very cute as a kicky top. Agree with you in it's full length a little nightgowny. But I find that is what I think of many things I see on the market to be worn for daytime. With all of the buttons down the back might be a little bit uncomfortable to sleep in if you sleep on your back..... Just IMHO...
