Rainy Day Me-Made-May #2 Burda Style 7137

My Me-Made-May #2
Dress - Burda Style 7137
Lipstick necklace - Modcloth
Shoes - BCBG
Kisses Umbrella - LULU 
I can not remember the last time I did not purchase a houndstooth fabric. Its a weakness. I will innocently go to Fabric Mart with the intention of just looking, getting inspiration, knowing good and well the last thing I need is more fabric. Somehow next thing I know I am justifying how the new houndstooth in my cart is so different from the others and planning how it will be perfect for this, that or the other.
At this point I have amassed a few houndstooth looks so what a better day than a rainy Me-Made-May Day to wear my Burda Style 7137, view A. Burda calls this a plain artless basic dress somedays one just needs a plain dress.
My favorite thing about this pattern was that the sleeves in view A have a contour dart from the wrist to the elbow, it might just be my favorite long sleeve pattern.
What I hate about this dress is that I had planned for the plaid to line up on the side seams but with no, I was off.

I also made View C. Guess what, it has a houndstooth print collar and cuff. I have yet to wear it.
