Still up to my eyeballs here, so this is a quick one.
I finally remembered to snap a photo of the finished cowl-front dress (a descendent of the green dress, and many others). Having fluked a perfect cowl on a pattern-free top a while ago, I've been working on making a pattern for this dress idea.
It's been one of those between-book-chapter-writing think-music projects. Now I have a pattern (and seven toiles/muslins) for it.
For me, it's the perfect little dress for summer in Melbourne. It's a little bit slinky but not too sassy, not too casual but nor is it formal, and most importantly, it's super-cool and comfortable. I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself.
I want it in green... and blue....
I have to find the right fabric...and finish a chapter (or two).
PS. Since I Facebooked the photo this morning, I've had requests for the pattern. I'm afraid it's only in my size, and I'm not sure how easily it'd alter to fit different proportions. I'm a bit on the titchy side of average height/size. We might have to allow a bit more think-music time for that one.
