So close. And yet...
So the back story is that I saw this POST by Suzanne over at Adventures in Dressmaking and I was HAUNTED (haunted I tell you!) by how cute the blue dress was. Then a few days ago I discovered the Lilly Pulitzer Shop. And the glorious, lovely want want want-able dresses therein. Like ZEEZ:
See, a perfect storm of pretty inspiration.
So I picked up a few things, and spent this morning whipping up....
A GIANT FAIL.
The theory is totally sound. And I actually like the pattern. Except for The Boob Issue.
Now, my boobs are... not so muchly. I mean they're there, but they could in no way be described as a rack. Le sigh.
BUT, this blasted dress fits everywhere but the boobs. Them it squishs. Really squishes. So I get pooch under the armpits and I can't barely breath. Booooo. Also I think it's a little short.
And I hate hate hate back zippers. This one makes the dress look like a 1980's British primary school uniform.
But that's ok. I've got enough fabric for a rematch!
