July 23, 2013This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Finished Sundress Edition
by Betty Crafter
Y’all remember my 70s sundress aspirations, yes? Well, it’s finished! Now, don’t get too excited. It’s not exactly a win. I think I’d call it a “meh.” Let me preface by saying, this is why I rarely sew for myself. I never seem to end up with a garment that fits correctly. I need to take a class or something. This dress isn’t exactly flattering. I’d go as far as to say that it adds about 15 pounds to me. I even hesitate to put pictures of myself wearing it on the interwebs for all to see, but in the interest of journalism, here ya go.
It came out WAY too baggy, so I had to take it in about 1.5 inches on each side, which really improved the fit. Still, though, it’s awfully big, and as I mentioned, doesn’t really do me many favors.
But there are positives! I love the drape of the fabric, my on-the-fly self drafted pockets turned out to function fine, and it’s super comfy! I can see myself wearing this dress around the house or on errands. Nowhere fancy though.
And thanks to Little Betty for taking these pictures! Not bad for a 4 year old, huh?
