remember this little beaut? awkward midi length printed corduroy with armscyes dangerously nearing side-boob territory. much improved.
as evidenced here... fine-wale corduroy in dry staticy apartment picks up everything. i dont even know what i own that is white and fluffy. i have a black cat, blackish hair, a veritable rainbow of sweaters, and brown faux fur accessories. i digress.
prior to chopping 14" off the bottom of the dress, i popped in boob darts and decided i quite liked the resulting teardrop shaped armscyes. after hemming the bottom i thought ... hm. perhaps a back cut-out is in order. its heavy woven cotton so there shouldnt be too much weird pulling, i have more than enough fabric for bias tape, and i will actually try it on and mark my bra line so the cut-out isnt too low.
well i tried.
the corduroy is ever so slightly stretchy and i didnt interface the back. cos im lazy. so its a little wonky. i'll see what happens when i wash it... and if its still messed up i guess i'll sew some fabric [lace maybe?] back under it to flatten out the top and bottom of the heart.
