The two that I'm going to show you today though....blah. I thought they'd be a nice simple silhouette that would be perfect for the office but I doubt very much that I'll be wearing either one of these.
Here's the first one:
I made view A. Simple, elegant, form fitting.
I was originally going to make the top piece in a solid bluey grey fabric that matches the floral print but changed my mind at the last minute.
I confess that I did wear it to a work event once but the only reason was because I had really long hair and was able to hide the back of it.
I actually had to make a little patch that I pinned across the top of the zipper on the inside so that my bra strap wouldn't show. There is a hook and eye but it's murder to clasp it without it help.
This dress is definitely going in the 'not wearing ever again' pile.
I thought I could make up for that disaster with the next Vogue pattern:
Again, very simple, classic, and elegant.
But also not a very good fit.
|I'm standing with my hands like that so that
I can take it in a bit. I would probably look
funny if I walked around the office all day like this though~
I'm not sure if it's the patterns or just that this style doesn't suit my body type but I'm off the Vogue for awhile.
