This dress took me a long time to finish and I am less than in love with the final product.
Anyways, I am no photographer, obviously. I can't wait until the days get longer and I can get Andrew to take pictures outside again!
My main point of disgust for this dress is the neckline. It looks awful and the fit is awful. It goes too far to the sides, showing bra straps, and it is also DESIGNED to have that stupid inset in the neckline. I had hoped I could leave it out (I also called it the "Modesty Panel" the entire time I was sewing) but in the end the neckline is just way too low and gaping. So I sewed it in, but I really think it has a "oops, let's fix this neckline that's too low, but I'm already done sewing the dress" look. But they designed it like that! Why?????

This pattern is a "NOPE" for me and I won't ever make it again. It was a disappointment. I may still wear this dress at some point, but I do not love it. That's two meh items for January. I am losing my sewing mojo with all of these icky items!
Well, I am off to Oregon to visit my parents for about a week. I am going to take pictures of my dad in all of his hats and then put him on the interwebs. hahahahaha.
