i have had this insane fabric sitting around for probably 2 years now. i had no idea what to do with it or why i even bought it. thanks fabric.com for tempting my sometimes overly impulsive purchasing habits.
same new look pattern as the prior dress but only for the bodice. i attempted some slight resizing [fail] and instead of sleeves i added quadruple straps. the back is partially open [giant button and 7" zipper instead of 22"] cos apparently this summer in maine has been declared "hot as balls" pretty much daily.
with the remaining fabric [there were probably 2 yards to start with] i
made a hybrid circle/fishtail skirt which i do believe turned out
i guess the only issue now is... where in the hell would i ever wear this dress? in my future career as a construction site flagger? when i audition for clown college? perhaps in a test for genetically inherited colorblindness? cohosting reading rainbow? signaling airplanes on the tarmac? making up implausible scenarios the host of a children's show?
ever so slightly toned down with a belt and blazer..
