What I wore: DIY kate spade Jillian dress

I went to vote today so I wore red white and blue.  This dress is my feeble attempt at the kate spade Jillian dress.  I ruined one of my Jillians by spilling bleach on it so I cut it up to see how to make the little waist detail.  I am so glad that I did because I would never have figured it out otherwise.  One dress bites the dust but paves the way for many many more to be made!!!

Now that I know how to do it, I am planning several more dresses. I have seen this style on many vintage dresses and even have a dress pattern that has this waist treatment.  Here are some of the adaptations i pinned on Pinterest of the Jillian style...they were actually first, I guess the Jillian is an adaptation of them!

  there are many many more and I love them all!  Which is your favorite?
