I should have finished that dress last night. It’s four (five with the facing) pieces of almost squarish fabric. What’s wrong with me???
I’ll tell you what’s wrong with me. I’m a 42 yr old (almost 43) woman who, lately, can’t refuse a cookie, some ice cream, or a triple cream cheese. AND, I picked a dress that has a straight knit skirt. Remember the last time I did that? I ended up making two skirts for the dress: one for my skinny sister and one for my dress.
Yeah, well, the one that fit me? It kinda doesn’t anymore. It now resembles the first skirt that I gave my skinny sister. *sigh* I guess I will have to go on that diet afterall. *silent tears falling*
So going back to the title of this post, it’s complicated… Because of the, ahem,
tightness fitted look of the skirt and the fact that I don’t have enough fabric to cut a larger size, I need to line the skirt now for modesty’s sake and the mental health of all on-lookers. So what was a simple dress is now a complicated project. ARGH. Nothing is ever simple for me.
I still love my fabric. I still love the dress, but I think it’s too much of a hoochie mama style for work. The bodice looks great though. I love the cowl neck and I didn’t need to do an FBA. There’s no fabric straining over the girls.
Well, gotta go now. I’m off to go starve myself and exercize in the faint hope that I can fit into any of my clothes.
ETA: the blue dress above is one I made last year not the one I am currently making. Unfortunately the blue dress no longer fits the way it does in that picture; it’s much tighter on the bottom now. Almost as tight as the original skirt I made for it unfortunately. 🙁
