Yes that’s right I did it again. I gave myself bangs. I don’t know why I did it. Bad hair day? Proximity to my sewing scissors? Who knows. The problem is that bangs are cute for only a second and then they make you feel like this…
It happened. Let just get over it and move on.
But it addition to giving myself bangs, I again decided to embark on something else again this month. I made another My Dress from Debbie Brooke Designs! I made it back in December, as seen here, but was feeling frisky and decided to make another one. This time I decided to go with the same print throughout the entire dress. I choose a beautiful linen that I had my eye on at Five Eighth Seams and I might add that this was my first time ever using linen. All I can say about that is gee whiz you better keep your iron hot and ready at all times because it wrinkles fast!
I guess my third “Oops I did it again” confession this month is about the length of the dress. While cutting out the fabric, I tried really really hard to make sure I lined up all the lines and squares of the print so that it would flow well together and look almost like a built in empire belt. I should of planned ahead when I cut my fabric, but I didn’t because I like to live dangerously. So when I went to add the skirt part of the dress to the bodice, I had to move it up about an inch, thus losing an inch off the bottom. So yes, oops I did it again and made a modest looking dress become borderline slutty. And yes I do like to show some leg from time to time, but I promise this time it was unintentional. But still I think it turned out great. It will be a fun dress to wear around this summer.
