I'm working on...

I'm currently finishing up projects--a blouse, a dress, and a pair of slacks. The blouse and the dress are already winners but the slacks may not make the cut. One other dress didn't make the cut--Vogue 8805.



Although I wanted to get in on the color block trend, this dress was a miserable fail. Maybe it was my fabric choice but it was most likely that the glorified flour sack just didn't suit me. I didn't even bother to finish it after getting it to the point that I could try it on. It's already been trashed.

  3. That's a shame... I have that pattern too and even before making it feel like it may be the same as for you but I will try. I got some really cheap (but nice) fabric that I'll try it out on and I have 4 sisters so it may fit someone!

  5. I'm sorry it didn't work for you. I have the pattern, and like you, I don't think it I'll work for my shape either.

  8. I love this color combination. It usually takes me a while to discard something when I feel like it's not workin' for me. Sounds like you've moved on....good for you!

  9. Oh man, I love your color combination. Are you sure it can't be saved? Looks great to me.

  10. I love the colors you chose for the color blocking. I think the dress looks pretty good but I know once your mind is turned off it is hard to see how it may suit you.
