It's still crazy hot in LA and I'd really like to start wearing Fall clothes but meanwhile, I'm trying to work some transitional pieces into my wardrobe so that I can at least imagine that Fall is here. This dress is a great example of a transitional piece. The sleeves and high neck make it covered up just enough so that when paired with tights and a cardi, it would actually keep you quite warm.
How to DIY a Striped Dress
Step 1: Today's inspiration dress is this striped dress from Zara. It even has a really cool little gold zippered pocket on the side.
Step 3: For fabric, most any knit, like this stripe, will do but a nice thick double knit will easily take you into the Fall.
This would be a really simple dress to make and just the kind of project that I love to do–quick, easy and very wearable.
