Shabby Apple Dresses Design Challenge. I went with a retro wiggle dress style that I love to wear. There is a great 1940's vintage blouse in the college costume shop that is an acid green with purple accents. This is my color inspiration. I also love purple on red heads and was totally in love with the purple coat Julianne Moore wore in the last scene of Crazy Stupid Love. An additional color option would be a greenish grey, with army green and red accents and gold buttons for a more military feel. The fabric would be some sort of cotton with a bit of stretch and maybe a dash of wool so that it could be nicely tailored but also have a bit of forgiveness. A summer weight wool would be aces. The design is called "Take a Memo"...in honor of Joan...the sexiest secretary ever.
