Me Made May Day 4
Desperately trying to find something else to make!
Actually I'm looking for a nice easy trouser pattern. I have an irrational fear of trouser making and I think I've put it off for too long now. I am going to find a nice sewing lesson pattern in Burda and go for it!
The dress I am wearing today is a project runway dress. It was one of the first things I ever made way back in the before blogging days and it is a bit of a sack! I was convinced my massive hips were not going to fit any pattern when I started out so I pretty much drew an arc from waist to hem! I've calmed down a bit now but my pear shape is the reason I've not made trousers.
The picture above shows the dress as it is - there is no way of styling it that doesn't make me look pregnant so I've made an obi belt in the same fabric.
I can't help but think that I now look like a sack tied in the middle. Needless to say I don't wear this very often!
