Little White Dress Contest

Today begins the first PatternReview.com contest of the year, the Little White Dress Contest!

I was dubious of the wisdom of wearing a white dress — images of the Michelin Man and the Pillsbury Doughboy  kept popping into my mind — but then I got the latest issue of Marie Claire. Inspiration! Specifically from “101 Ideas” which gave readers ideas for emulating Rodarte‘s recent take on California cool. I also found an awesome look from their Fall/Winter 2013 collection…

The article also suggested skirts from Topshop Starring Kate Bosworth (which  I can no longer find online), Shakuhachi, and Veronica Beard:

I’m still a little skittish about wearing all white, but with these fantastic designers as inspiration (and my pattern stash for guidance), maybe I’ll end up with a fabulous new wardrobe go-to!
