“Carrie” Off-the-Shoulder Dress


Back in the 6th grade when I’d have sleepovers at my friend Georgia’s house, she’d introduce me to shows on Netflix. One night she showed me Carrie Diaries, and I loved it. When I told my mom about the show, she said it was the younger version of Sex in The City, a show she used to watch. Problem was I didn’t have Netflix at the time …so I forgot about the show. It was one of the first shows I started binge-watching when we finally got Netflix a year later.

Carrie Diaries is about the life of young fashion-forward Carrie Bradshaw (played by AnnaSophia Robb). She works in Manhattan, but lives and goes to high school in Connecticut. Over the 2 seasons, you see her grow from a teenager to a young woman..and all the choices she makes along the way.


When I was looking through pattern books at Stone Mountain and Daughter, I saw this oversize off the shoulder dress pattern (Cynthia Rowley 8124) and immediately thought CARRIE DIARIES.  The pattern was very straightforward, so I made most of it without looking at the instructions. But I had to take in the side seams (almost 7 inches) because the dress was HUGE on me. The fabric is silk with a bold floral pattern which we got at Discount Fabrics. It’s a statement-y  fabric and pattern that seemed very Carrie. I plan to wear this at my cousin’s wedding next year!
