As a hostess, I am a little late. But in fairness, I did jump the gun with my purple cheetah Connie Crawford. That last sentence has never been uttered before, I’m sure.
Let me also share that Mr B hates this pattern. Seriously. It has a mini-mullet hem, it is empire waist and it has a funky gathered business that hikes up one side. Well, cheese and crackers, when you put it all together, I’m not sure why I like it. But I do. Hey, did I mention we are in the midst of Snowpocalypse? Yes! We got 1 inch. Its was devastating to our natural order. These pics show my dedication to showing you chubby girls in foolish fashions!
I love a flowy, fluttery thing and this does that. It’s probably a fabric better suited to a little blouse, but hey, in for a penny, right?
That big old gathery business hides an immense pocket. Seriously, it’s like oven mitt sized. I can carry Flannery in there if I wish to. I’m not sure she’d like it, but I could!
Woo- she is fierce! As fierce as a day-glo python? I know I am! Bodice detail:
Check out my moves! See me terrorize the villagers! Look out
mongooses– mongeese? A mangle on mongoose? A whole mess of them, whatever they like to be called in plural!!
Pattern thoughts: why does a pattern designed for knits need a back zip? Does it help or just cut up my lovely gaudiness? I skipped it. I also used a charmeuse- yes- I am perpetrating charmeuse abuse! But it worked and doesn’t that make me quite the little rebel? heehee- also a charter member of Slytherin!
Wondering about the title? When I first tried this on it made me think about the Little Prince. Damn, I look like a snake that swallowed an elephant?!
