I love the pattern, and I love the dress, but I don't like how the pictures turned out. Of course I don't have the right shoes to wear with it, so I went for the blue suede ones which have never been worn outside of the house. The light's too bright.
Next time, I'll get rid of the front darts, but I couldn't ask for a better armscye. I was tempted to overfit it, but remember I'll be getting down on the floor in this.
These are the more practical, less sexy Teva sandals that will probably be worn with the dress in Japan. This is me chasing a takushi (taxi - isn't Japanese funny?!).
The crappy iPhone camera with my bathroom lighting did more justice to the fabric. What a nice fit over the back where I usually have swayback wrinkles, and ignore the other wrinkles - I sat in the dress for an hour. (Oh yeah, ignore the mismatched collar - heehee.)
I made the tiny self-fabric belt, but nobody had a decent buckle, so I'll be looking for one on the internet. These are just D-rings in the other pics. I plan to take better pics before I post the review at PR. Hey - have a great weekend!
