Apparently I'm not the only one who thought this design by Sandra Betzina was a bit, well, costumey. Over at Patternreview there is a multi-page thread discussing the fall Vogue pattern collection, including this pattern.
There's also an entire multi-page thread about whether or not women of "a certain age" could/should wear jumpers. (Thanks for pointing that one out to me Marji!) Today, after an enjoyable lunch conversation about fall fashion trends (with an extremely fashionable co-worker), I decided I will definitely be passing on the jumper trend.
But back to that Sandra Betzina pointy hem dress...my immediate thought was "oh, cute elf costume"
And I know what I'm talking about.
Back in 1982, as the newest member of my company's employee club, I was informed that all newbies are initiated by donning a costume for the company's annual children's Christmas party - and we didn't get to choose the costume.
Guess which costume they put me into?
