Isn’t that what they always say? This being true, as far as I’m concerned, today I took it upon myself to drag out the sewing machine and whip up a white dickey and a white sleeveless top for work.
Now the reason this is a “must have” for me is because we have to wear a white shirt with sleeves and a collar to work. I look terrible in white, too washed out. I always have to make sure I use bronzer and blush so I don’t look too pale and half-dead. So I had this brilliant idea that I can wear a black shirt as long as I have something white with a collar underneath. The reason this is okay is because over the winter they let us wear a black sweater over our white shirts.
Anyway, I’ve already tried this out with a dickey I ordered over the internet for $5. Nothing was said at all. Of course that dickey is a bit short but nicely made. I had to do a few tweaks on it to make it stay put under the black shirt during the day.
So today I made a longer dickey and a white sleeveless shirt out of the thinnest fabric I had around the house. It took me two hours to complete this project, so not bad considering it looks halfway decent and I haven’t really sewn anything in a while. This way I don’t have to wear white all the time. I intend to find a cute little lightweight black vest or something I can wear over my white shirts. We’ll see. If that doesn’t fly, it’s easy to take off at work.
What do you think?
