When I showed my new favourite dress recently I also announced that I had made a second version in a crazy panel print. I had not actually worn the dress at the time!
Well, if you’re looking for print craziness, I’m sure this doesn’t disappoint:
It’s the same pattern as for the British racing green dress, but in a panel print. Looking at it with the benefit of hindsight, the white section looks quite unfortunate, I think. But I could not have cut the dress any other way with the fabric I had, so if I were to start again I would not use this fabric for a dress again.
There was some discussion about the tummy camouflaging properites of rouching and whether a print will hide more than a solid. Well, judging from this dress and the solid green version I don’t think there is much of a difference. I guess I will either have to stop wearing snap-to-fit clothing or get over my tummy-phobia!
Here’s me crossing the road – because I can!
And here again me with my white bum… The more I look at it the more I am convinced this will not do. I guess I’ll just cut it off and use it as a top – do you think that’s a good idea?
And while I ponder the the dangers of print placement I ‘ll leave you with my “To be or not to be” moment if this Halloween
PS: The tombstone reads “They wanted a treat, but what they got was a trick” – it’s our take on reverse psychology on Halloween 😉
