Anyway, I had to let out some steam. Here's my latest project, this is actually a really good day to post this, I really like this dress and it reminds that I am capable of sewing. I kind of forgot today and it's nice to see a close up of my face and be reminded of that.
Yes! I made a cut out dress! I have joined the many lines of sewers who have cut out a hole in their garment and called it sewing.
I have chosen to a heart because it is romantic, elegant and shows a lot of cleavage. I am a true lady.
This was pretty fun to make. The fabric I used kind of felt like a bedsheet, which made it SO easy to use and handle. I love it when fabric does exactly what I say
I got my eyebrows plucked today. This did not help my I love sewing vibe today - it's hurts to look surprised and arch my eyebrow in contempt of other people's cut out dresses.
The back is kind of normal.
THAT IS NOT A FAT FOLD. It's not like I spent a week in Ireland eating fish and chips and ten pounds of bread every day.
The issue is that the heart tends to lose it's shape every time I move. In this dress I sit still and display my heart and order everyone around. And drink tea. And say the word Marvelous repeatedly.
I wore this on the train a few days ago and this beautiful stylish turban wearing Ethiopian girl told me that I look pretty. It was so random and sincere I almost cried.
Luckily a minute later this guy put a whole tomato in his mouth (not a cherry tomato. a whole tomato) and (I really don't know how he didn't see this coming) splattered everyone around him. I did not suffer the aftermath of this, but almost peed my pants from trying not to laugh.
This is the cleavage I was talking about. OH YEAH.
Yes I know I kind of overdid it with the pictures.
What do you think? Have you ever made a cut out garment? If not, are you thinking of attempting this style?
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
