Apologies for the not so clever post title, but it is what the dress has been referred to all along.
Without revealing what kind of work I do, I will admit that this was an occupational related project:
It was worn to The Fancy Food show being held in New York this week.
The pattern was at one time a shift dress from Butterick 5147 an OOP coordinate pattern. Like a game of telephone it is no longer anything like what it started as.
At some point (like when I get someone to take all the photograph's needed, I'll do a post on the 5 previous versions. I attended a Kenneth D. King fit clinic at Sew Right last year, so the pattern has been adjusted for my short and narrow shoulders. I had split the pattern at just above the waistline and spread the bottom for gathers and added pockets. For this version I replaced the gathers with pleats.
Here's an up close picture of the print to see how much it really does look like handcrafted bread:
Just to show that I was not alone in product appropriate attire here I am joined by a bagel dress and ice cream pants:
Now on to version 6; shift version.
