Should I? (aka "Step Away from the Mood Website")

Help! Not sure what to do...

Ever since I pinned this image on Pinterest, it's been repinned repeatedly. I love the neckline and the utter femininity of this look.


I already have a pattern in mind, Vogue 8633.

This fabric is available at Mood, and is "almost sold out".

The angel on my shoulder says, "It's September, what are you going to do with a pink dress?"
The devil says, "You'll sew it up and wear it in the Spring!"
The angel says, "You NEVER wear pink."
The devil says, "But, it's so pretty... you look great in pink!"
The angel says, "You have boxes and boxes of fabric already."
The devil says, "It won't cost you a dime, you still have that big credit on file at Mood!"

WHAT SHOULD I DO???

Go for it! It gorgeous. FWIW, I just started sewing a summer jacket that I won't wear until next year. You are not alone!

I say wait for different fabric. the inspiration dress is not pink and I think a true pink fabric like this mood fabric will make it look too twee instead of womanly feminine.

I think go for it if pink does suit you. Maybe you never found the right pink dress before (to persuade you to wear it).

I say go for it! It's such a beautiful pattern and print. They were made for each other. :-)

Buy it; sew it! Once you have the dress, occasions to wear it will come!

Dawn said...

I have two thoughts. Either buy it if you love the fabric, or do what Debbie says, wait. I love the inspiration fabric more than the all-pink one. I'm not a pinky-pink kind of girl though. I do really like the cream with pink flowers though. But you know if you truly like the fabric. :)

I say buy it, you won't regret it.

You should buy it. Accessories done right can tone down the over pinkiness (?), if thats a concern.

If you really love the pink fabric, go for it. Pink is "in" this fall.

You have to do it! That's why you have to do it, because you usually don't wear pink. It will be a "WOW".
With a grey jacket can be good in autumn-winter, too.

Go for it! Life is short!!! Enjoy!!

Linda said...

If you don't wear pink, you may end up not liking this once you get it and use up some credit that could go toward something for fall/winter. That's my two cents worth.

Angels usually speak more truth than devils. The fabric isn't close enough to your concept. Pink on pink is not right.

Get the fabric and notions. Make the dress. Pack it away until springtime. New Easter dress already accomplished. Think of the joy you'll have when you open that box/suitcase/vacuumable plastic storage bag and unfold the lovely, cherry-blossom pink dress, all fresh and sweet. Plus, you are in the mood to sew it now, and may not be in the mood to sew it come next spring. There's that to consider.

I am not even a pink person but I like that pink. You can always use contrasting jewellery.

I'm not a pink person either, so I am a biased against the mood fabric. Something about it is just too much. I'd wait to find a fabric closer to the inspiration dress.
