Now. I had GRAND plans for this dress. I won't EVEN post my inspiration pic because it really doesn't do it ANY justice.
This dress Butterick 5706 view c is a TOTAL fail. Here is the pic:
I was talking to my friend about it and let me tell yall, YOU NEED A FRIEND THAT WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU LOOK A HOT MESS LOL. Now this isn't exactly a hot mess but this dress doesn't work for me.
- It's too linear. It needs to fit and flare.
- Even though I lengthened this in the back and left the front short, I think the back could've been longer.
- This was the first dress I made to wear while I was on bed rest. I didn't PLAN to belt it. I should have added some shaping. This dress has NONE.
- I don't have a defined waist so I HAVE to have some great shaping or a belt to compliment my figure.
So my try at a high low / color block was a total fail. This dress is now in the trash, but I did learn a good lesson and me & my friend got a GOOD laugh lol. I did wear it once and put it in the black bag when I got back home lol.
I won't make this dress again but I WILL make another one based on my inspiration dress that I still won't post lol.
I'm finally getting to where I "get" what compliments my shape. I have to "create" a waist. I'm having fun now looking at patterns and discovering things that I really didn't notice before because I have figured out what looks good on me. Yep. WOOHOO lol. Not without the help of my dear heart though lol.
Alright, lemme go! More later!
