Well, this is a little disappointing . . . I muslin-ed a semi-fitted shift dress that fit perfectly on top . . . . . . and then hung like a sack over the rest of me. This was for the pattern that I was going to use for the PR RTW Knockoff (a fabulous Oscar de la Renta design). I had visions of sewing dozens of gorgeous Carolyn type dresses - smart, professional, comfortable etc.,etc.,etc., and instead I just look like a cylinder on legs. And it is not as though I can take in darts or use more shaping as I actually look like a cylinder on legs in reality. Oh well, plan B.
Would you believe that the fabric in each of these fabrics is the same - just goes to show how some patterns mess around with your cameras!!
Anyhow, I love the fabric/lace combination soooo much that I am thinking of mixing my designers and making a Haider Ackerman duster:
I think! With a black column underneath, I think it will look pretty swish. But maybe I will change my mind in the time it takes me to prep the fabric and get it cut out!
Voting has now begun for the PR contest One Pattern Many Looks - so why don't you drop in and vote, there are some fabulous garments . . . and if you feel my offerings are worthy, a vote would be appreciated!!
