I just came across another fun version of the "Duro" dress on the Sew Retro blog. It appears to be sewn using the McCall's pattern 5137. Another take on color combination - pinks and blues. I find it interesting all of the various fabrics that are being used for this dress.
I haven't actually seen anyone wearing this style dress. My only exposure to it has been in magazines photos and on the sewing boards. Hmmm, too soon in this part of the country? I'll have to wait and see.
