I was very tempted to title this post: ‘Nicola meets my little fat-rolla’; because I’ve been speculating that perhaps this pattern company, tho lovely is just not geared toward my frame. Look- even the model is exercising!
I love Victory Patterns and I have really enjoyed seeing other sewcialists makes. I made the Anouk previously- it was a size grading job a little beyond my abilities, but it is sooo pretty! I’m rambling. I know. Ok, here we go. You know looking glamorous is all about your setting. While waiting for the rain to stop, I broke down and posed in my husband and his brothers makeshift brewing area. Boil and bubble- I’m like a white trash Lady Macbeth over here.
I’m actually very pleased with this- I think it’s flattering, tho maybe a narrower belt would be better…you think? Since I can’t arrange a narrower me. By the way, this according to my husband should be my signature vanity lighting. Rain and steam. Nice. My pores are amazing here, aren’t they?
This is another fabricmart sale fabric that followed me home- look- floral animal print- grr! Cuz baby, I am vicious! I didn’t do many changes to this- I only did 1 dart on each side on the back and that was enough to get my caboose covered. Here’s a casual spin to show the lining.
This is one of those dreses that for me is more decorative than functional- I ride a desk chair all day, with intermittent parades to different departments, so wrap dresses always seem to need a lap robe after a few minutes- or perhaps a well- placed dachshund to hold it in place.
This make has given me the courage to try another Victory pattern- in a wild moment I bought them all! So if you think there is one that would lend itself better to my girlish contours just let me know- before the glow of this success wanes- or I wake up! Here’s my ‘What are you wretched crumb snatchers next door doing in my lilacs?!’ face….
