So...this has been quite the sewing week, despite my raw throat and cold. Yesterday I whipped this dress up out of some lovely tan/green/lime/aqua/navy/yellow-gold flowered knit that I got at Joanns. It was red tag, so it was probably $2.50 a yard. I used the above pattern, Simplicity 2580 - view b with the flutter sleeves.
Now the dilemma. Wouldn't be posting if there weren't a catch right? Just kidding. :-)
It is too short, to slinky, and too...loud/printy/?
I don't know, something is rubbing me the wrong way, so I'm adding a blue microsuede ruffle at the bottom and maybe a very skinny sash type thing to break up the, you know, the print.
Can you tell I don't sew in big prints very often?! :-)
Anyway, good pictures of the final product and a full review on sunday or monday!
