To be honest, my rant in this post about weight, was really sparked by the photos I didn't choose for these outfits. The red dress is from the same pattern as the blue dress, Vogue 8679. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of thinking I was using a non-stable knit and did the size for really stretchy knits. So, I haven't worn it much because its super tight through the shoulders, weight or no weight. ACK. So, I only wear it with this knit shrug I bought at Target last fall. Note to self, make larger sleeves for stable knits.
If you are wondering what i'm doing, two very large red-breasted hawks had just decided to land in the tree by the club house. Totally caught my attention.
Oh hey, remember my bolero adventure? You know, the floral one that I was so proud of? Here it is on me! When I first wore this outfit Felicity told me "That necklace makes the outfit". I think she's spot on there. The necklace belonged to my Grandmother.
Another note to self, change camera position in the future. In any case, I had done all these photos the same day and after five wardrobe changes I was pretty much over it. That and it was three hours past my normal bedtime. I pretty much covered all the construction details, I believe. Or maybe I haven't? I dunno. I've just been neglecting this poor little blog for so long I don't know what's what. I'm gonna have to fix that.
Ugg, please excuse my hair. I didn't think to brush it when I took it out of the clip. As you can see though, the fit is pretty spot on.
And the side. Here you can see the Dior Dart if you look closely. Also, after seeing the photos, I'm pretty happy with the sleeves. I think I could have taken a half inch out between the elbow and shoulder. Or put in better shoulder pads. In any case, I'm making one more in black cotton velveteen soon. Wish me luck!
