My heavens, this looks depressing! Fear not, it is a brown gingham muslin for the green linen dress. I cut a size 8 and morphed to a 10 at the hips. I think it is pretty good. I could not get a decent pic of the back and DH was not around. I need to do a slight swayback adjustment there and tweek the right shoulder and that should do it. I am having thoughts about this linen dress and may do a white binding for some linear emphasis. I am also thinking if I do the breast pockets as in one of the views it could give me some needed balance at the top. You can see the gingham is marked up. I did my straight of grains in red but other markings in blue and green. The apex is right where it is supposed to be, a surprise to me , and the waistline just a tad higher. If flares out comfortably so I don't think I will have the buttons popping like I experienced at 17. I am liking this pattern so far. Question for someone. On patterns there is a cross in a circle marking the apex of the bustline on the bodice. I have that same mark on my outer thigh right where you see my thumb tip. It is in the middle of the side front piece. Its way to low for a hip bone and in a weird spot. Anyone know what that is for? TIA..
Thanks for entering the no makeup no hair zone here on the blog. I knew you would understand. Did anyone see the babes of the Today show go on without any makeup last week? It was incredible to see them in real life. They all seemed to like the no makeup look and feel. Myself, don't know if I will ever be ready for that.......Bunny
