Simplicity 7181 Finished
I was not particularly happy with this dress when I finished it last night. It was huge on me and reminded me of a night gown. How could I wear a thing like that in public?
As I was lying in bed, I thought about how to fix this "mess". I decided the quickest solution was to make a long self tie belt and wear it just under the bust, the slimmest part of my anatomy. Well, what a difference a little belt makes. Now I love this dress and wore it proudly all day.
This has happened to me many times. I finish a project and I don't like it. Then I give it a day and see it in a whole new light.
As long as the pattern pieces are still out, I will definitely make one more and then move onto something else.
