If slim women with broad shoulders and small busts are the metaphorical clothes hangers of the fashion world then I must be the laundry basket.
Gosh it's hard to find clothes that look good and make them fit well too. I am still learning, yes, learning ALL the time.
I've been trying to use a tripod so I can take photos when TMB's at work. As soon as Benjy sees me set the timer he starts scrabbling at my legs. Sheesh! Talk about wanting to be IN everything.
I do love the shirring on this. I do also love the fabric (Italian cotton) - so soft and beautifully woven. There are definitely a few "made by loving hands" details on this. Actually, after I put in the collar stand very wonkily I looked up others who had made this dress and enlarged their photos. How lovely, one of them made a rough job too. That was very gratifying.
Anyone else out there admit to sewing schadenfreude (enjoyment at other's sewing woes)?
In fact I enjoy it so much, I thought I might start a little confessions corner, one where I show you a picture of something really wonkily sewn on the garment I just made.
But this won't be it. Please, first admire my double welt pocket.
