"The Dress Alone"
"With the Lacy Cardigan"
I love dresses made from cotton sateen with a little lycra in them. They are usually made with the brightest colors in the best prints, but wearing this one around today I remembered why I rarely make dresses from this type of fabric...
*after wearing all day they stretch - so if you've already got alot of fabric in a dress - there's even more!
*I had to wear a half slip with this to stop it from clinging to me and my Spanx!
*And after sitting in it a few hours, I had a "butt print"....ummm not an attractive look when leaving a meeting.
However, I wasn't burning up in "the heatwave" when I went outside today...and I wasn't freezing when I was in the office...so it did have some good points.
But I feel like I'm two for two in the "meh" department because I don't LOVE either one of the last two dresses I've made. I think I need to just take a time out from sewing! Me thinks that I'm so invested in my September vacation sewing that I'm just NOT getting it right now...*sigh*
