But, when I put it on, all I can think is, "Blah. Meh. Whatever." (I made view A, in navy blue bamboo knit). I am not bothering to post a pic of me in it.
So, it's a "blah-der". I will wear it at home, and it might serve as a nightgown.
I could kick myself because I knew better. Pleats or gathering at the waist is a no-no for me. But, I have had this pattern forever and watched so many others make really cute dresses. "Everybody's doing it... I want to be cool like them!". I got up in the craze, what can I say? It wasn't the fabric's fault either, this bamboo is super soft and exactly what the pattern calls for. Sizing? Exactly what I usually do, and it's not too big. But, it makes me look bigger than I am, and who wants that?
So, I will chalk this up as a lesson learned, and move onto a new project. I am in need of an exciting challenge, and have an idea in mind. I am going to dig into the fabric and pattern stash, and return with some garments that make me excited to sew and excited to wear. In public.
