NL 6000 or How empowering little girls will wreck your figure!

Posted on Updated on


BOE

Here they come. Ringing the doorbell, stopping you at the Sam’s, slipped onto your desk by co-workers. Yes, it’s that time again and Juliette Gordon Low, I am mad at you!juliette-gordon-low-2

It was February and I wanted to be a Scruffy Badger Scout like all the cool kids-  I bought the pattern and the polka dotted (ok, sort of polka dotted) fabric for my uniform and I was really liking my dress- until YOU meddling kids showed up with your smiles promising girly empowerment, but  really just masking caloric intake! Shame on you! Now my NL 6000 is bursting at the seams and my breath smells of shame and thin mints! Oh, how evil you little moppets are! I’ve paid $3.50 a box to send you to sleepaway camp and now I can’t afford my much needed trip to a fat camp for me! I’m three more boxes away from looking like the First Lady- and I don’t mean the one who loves Jason Wu!?FS93_GS_1

Ah me, here goes nothing-cookie1

I chose View A and I really enjoyed making the pleats- can you see them around the peanut butter patties? That by the way is my new nickname for my hips.   I had to alter the pattern to my usual 18ish. Hey New Look? Where are the patterns for the dainty plussers?cookie2

Don’t make me put these cookies down and fire off an angry letter- cuz I just might!! Ok, maybe I’ll just finish this sleeve of thin mints first- I don’t want them to dry out. Or be eaten by the camera man. That would suck, too.cookie3

This is lined in an ivory batiste and I didn’t take into account that it might take up some of my ease space- yup, thats what happened, it’s that darned thick, thick batiste taking up all my oxygen room!IMG_4043

‘She looked like she had been poured into her clothes and had forgotten to say ‘when’ – P G Wodehouse.   I think that about sums it up. I think I will put my little frock in the closet until the weather warms up and I am out of cookies!!  I do love this look, I know I will wear it to death later in the year after I perhaps burn off a couple of hundred samoas walking the puffy-pups.cookie4

Aw, Juliette, I can’t stay mad at you- you’re just too cuddly! *Unsubstantiated Bonus Jules GL trivia: Samoas, the best cookie by far was named after Jule’s South Pacific Islander love toy Fetu- her first viewing of the prototype cookie made her weep and exclaim, ‘The rich caramel color, it is so like my Fetu…..so  yummy…..’.. * 74c1cf37c200b0faf90262faca04ab88

    Hahahaha. I, and apparently doggie, are unable to resist those cookies either. I have a box of mint chocolate on the go!

    But, your dress!! My goodness, it’s lovely. Polka dots in the print and that style, your waist looks teeny tiny. This really is a very elegant looking dress, it really demands tea in proper china to go along with your cookies. Well done and good choice!

    You crack me up! I really like how this turned out for you, perhaps you just aren’t used to wearing stuff that is nicely fitted? And I know from experience that Spanx will help cover a multitude of tiny minty-flavored sins (or in my case, a lot of large round pizza-flavored sins). ;-)

    Anne – that dress is BEAUTIFUL. Looks stunning on you. It looks so good that if I thought that it would look even passable on me I would rush out and buy it – but alas – I don’t think it would suit me. LOVE it on you. Great fabric too. Very nice indeed.

    And don’t you know those sneaky scouts were lurking outside the fabric store today too! I must be in the high rent district – our Girl Scouts are charging $4.00 a box. But your dress – it’s gorgeous! I love the print and you look great in it. Hmmm, maybe Girl Scout cookies so a body good!

    Love this, I’m sure anything you were hiding was far worse in your head than it actually looked. And I LOVE the Wodehouse quote. Going to have to use it. The pink, atomic print looks fab as do the pleats. Mmmmm mint thins….also….one last thing, how come your Girl Scout cookies only $3.50? My local Donald Trump protégée’s charged me $4 a box to feed my addiction. I’m obviously a captive market.

    But I love it! I reckon it looks fantastic – especially in that print! NL6000 is still on my to-sew list, but you may have just moved it up a notch or two. If I don’t eat any girl guide cookies, that is. (My daughter IS a girl guide…and does sell them….)

    Those cookies just look divine and I can so relate to eating them before they go stale… what a waste and crime that would be. Hubby made a cake when we were in cyclone lock down and we ate the whole thing that day… there was no way I was letting cyclone rusty have his way with it or let it go stale… little Zoe enjoyed a slice of it as well… although only a tiny one as I was too darn selfish to share a whole piece of it. Oh by the way I love your dress too LOL… seriously though your dress is gorgeous on you and the fabric is just as yummy as those cookies look too :)

    Good thing my four boxes don’t arrive for another two weeks and I got my 6000 done before it all went to hell. Maybe I should finish my other fitted sewalong dresses and get those documented too, and save all these nice stretchy knit projects in my queue for after Thin Mint-ageddon.

    Seriously, Anne, this is the most beautiful dress on you. Pink should definitely be your new brown. I LOVE how flattering the A version is. I steered clear of it because I didn’t think it would work (plus I’m hopeless at pleats), but you are the perfect model/enabler for it. You look awesome!!

    Lovely pink dress and I’ve always been intrigued by Girl Scout Cookies. How did that start? I was a Girl Guide and we didn’t do anything like that, we were too busy tying knots and square lashing bits of wood together!
    Any way I’m sure you’re right and its the thick batiste making the dress a leetle too snug!

    How deliciously funny. Your puppy needs another cookie.
    I am pretty sure you said when at the right spot, the dress looks awesome on you.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Great fabric choice, the colours look amazing on you, the silhouette is divine on you, and thus the combination is spectactular. Love it!

    We don’t get American Girl Guide cookies over here, but an American friend was posted some as a care package and she kindly shared them. Samoas are yum. I don’t blame you for indulging. It’s winter. Embrace the cookies.

    I saw this sew-along was going on but didn’t really see the appeal of this particular pattern – until now! It looks fabulous on you.

    Cookies or not, you look absolutely fabulous! If this was in a magazine I’d clip it for my stash ;-) Love the print, love the coloring – dress, purse, your hair and all, love the silhouette and pleats.

    Well I think the colour, style and all look soooooo pretty on you! Sorry late commenting, have had distractions taking me away from technology. But, is this beautiful dress good to ‘ know you’ve got’? With the empowering girls’ treats and their effects being temporary you’ve got a delight waiting for you. LOVE IT! And your write up, of course

    Okay, that is my favorite thing you have ever made and worn. It’s SO perfect for you! The fit, the color, the style of dress…amazing. And, that fabric print is to DIE for! I would make anything with that fabric…a skirt, an apron, pajamas, kitchen curtains…you name it.
    Now I wish I had a caramel delight.

    Forget GS cookies – this cookie of a dress has empowered you. Go, Pink!

    You wear that dress and the Girl Scout cookies beautifully! And your hair does look gorgeous. I’ve got a color appointment in a couple of days, and you’ve convinced me to go vibrant.

    I wear a lot of brown, too. The pink is soooo cute on you. But it ain’t polka dot in my book!

    Very stylish – mad men thing going on with this little number, great retroesque fabric. Mercifully we dont have GS cookies over here, sounds like a lethal combination, small sweet things selling small sweet things – whoever thought this up is a genius!

    How? How do you make eating cookies glamorous! I’m usually covered in crumbs with chocolate smears around my mouth. Or I would be if I ever ate cookies. Or chocolate. Which obviously I dont………

    Oh my gosh, I love this post. Are you sure it’s too tight? Because it looks great in photos. And I work in an elementary school. Those damn girl scouts get me every year. EVERY year.

Something lovely to share?
