Here's what happened to the leftover pink fabric from the hateful dress.
This dress was a dream to construct. The instructions were simple, the fabric behaved itself. I used a rolled hem foot on the sleeves and bottom. Zip! Done. I couldn't have asked for a simpler project.
It just doesn't really look right on me. The shape and color don't work. I suppose I should stick to fitted dresses and traditional red-head colors. Pink is difficult for us pelirojas to pull off. Here is the pattern. Nice,eh?
Here I am, aping the pattern art in an effort to make myself feel better. But I don't feel better. It's sad to make something you can't wear. Maybe I'd feel better if I passed it on to someone who can wear it? I have a mod friend who may just find this dress (and pattern) in her mailbox.
