|~ with my lady bag ~|
This is the kind of dress little girl me would love.
|~ even though you know I have pockets ~|
And old girl me loves it too.
|~ give us a twirl, girls ~|
The dress is from Tina Givens Morgan dress pattern, with many liberties taken in the making of it.
Let's see...I raised the waistline, lengthened the skirt, added pockets for goodness sake, lengthened the sleeves and added tucks, eliminated the back patch and continued the back neck pleats down to the waist, left out 1 of the 3 skirt panels due to lack of fabric, did my own collar installation, interfaced the center front plackets that hold the buttons and buttonholes. I didn't put in the recommended hem gathers or the overlapped skirt section. That's about it for alterations.
|~ here's the Matisse part ~|
oh, and the fabric is challis. nice.
|~ I've got my back covered ~|
with the addition of a skull & cross bone button at the back of the neck. You know, to counteract
the any twee.
|~ c'est fini avec les shoes from ebay ~|
Without further ado, I'll skip to my lou, to Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style. Then to Catherine's I'll Wear What I Like, but of course. And finally, Cherie's Shoe and Tell. See you all there.
