Andrew is back from frolicking in NY, so here are pictures of the dress on. I made the version with darts that won the poll, and it was the best choice. Thanks for your help, everyone who voted! I did an excellent job matching the stripes. It is meant to be a jumper, so it is somewhat loose. I compensated for that by hemming it into a miniskirt.Outside a masonic cemetery by the house.
Back. It has the magical double effect of making my butt flat and my shoulders look super broad. Gee, how cute.
It is really scratchy fabric. I guess I could wear it in the fall/winter with leggings and a long sleeve black shirt under it. That would be funny.
So, in conclusion, I am giving away the leftover fabric!! It is still a big piece, 29" by 64" and has one big stripe of hearts and one of the flowers. Probably good for a skirt or top of some kind. Polyester, somewhat stretchy, pretty scratchy. If you want it, send me an email with a suitable sob story on why you deserve it the most to mollysewsblog (at) gmail (dot) com
