Crappy Pictures of a Fabulous Dress

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!

I love this dress -- I think this is my favorite item that you've ever made! Great job - and so flattering and vintage inspired. Hurray for success!

Good looking dress and a good job with the lining and zip. Robbie

Thanks, Robbie.

Thank you, Heather! (I'm so proud a rock star from PR came by - I feel like Patricia on Project Runway when Michael Kors loved her collection!)

Nice dress! You'll look fabulous in Japan!

Sister said...

Thanks, Gwen. I'm "big" in Japan! (That's an old joke...)

Thanks Sister - Yes, I've been traveling for 9 of the last 12 weeks so hopefully things will ease up soon! Plus, work is driving me nuts, and I've been sick with various colds:( I did make a pair of yoga socks. Not exactly an outstanding achievement! I did happen to hit the Florabama during a visit to Pensacola and for some reason thought of you!

Yoga socks are no easy feat! (I made a joke.). I almost went to the mullet toss, but didn't make it.....
