I made the dickey from the book so I thought I'd share.  I lengthened the collar piece a little because my first once came out too small, but I think I lengthened it a little too much.  oh well, I still like it, and it was so quick and easy!  I used white bleached muslin.  I wouldn't normally wear it with the sweater vest I'm wearing in the picture, but it was the only sweater that I have in the apartment right now (since I never got around to weaving in my ends, opps).

(btw, I also made the sweater vest)

i love the length on that. I think it looks awesome.

Now, what do you actually wear that with? Sweaters? can you wear it with.....summer clothings?
I love it, though!

I think the length of it is just lovely.
