Friends, I want to thank all of you for all of your kind comments and amazing tips regarding the "Please, Just Make It Stop" Dress. It made me feel worlds better that maybe I wasn't the only one who absolutely detests tracing patterns. If I ever do choose to venture down that road again, I will definitely employ some of the tips you have so kindly passed along to me!
For today's challenge, I wanted to make up for yesterday's challenge. I knew I wanted to continue my stash busting trend, so I grabbed some sheer brown polyester blend and a fabulous ivory polyester blend for the lining to make Butterick 5206:
I figured that by using knit fabrics, I could avoid worrying about my clothes feeling too tight when I assault the meaty juicy goodness that is waiting for me on Thursday. There is one slight problem, however...
The parts of my body that stick out slightly press up against the ivory polyester lining..
...making a weird kind of effect and drawing eyes to certain parts that shouldn't be so recognizable.
I looked at the photos and it was very much a reaction of, "WHAT IS THAT."
The fabric is brown with an orange and yellow pattern. The belt incorporates some scrap orange polyester that was sitting in the stash closet of doom.
I like the dress, truly I do, but I'm worried if it doesn't seem a little... ahem ... scandalous for a Thanksgiving feast with the boyfriend's family.... many of whom are very religious and I have never met.
Friends, would you scrap the polyester dress of wonder? Or would you say it's okay for a family gathering?? I'd love to know your opinions! Either way, the dress is super comfy and would pack very well. Maybe I should track down a cardigan in the meantime...
have a fabulous night, all!
