Vogue 9293- a very jaunty summer pattern that screams McCall’s to me. It went together so well- so easy that it’s a darned shame that we aren’t getting along. I think it’s the vacillating front tie. Over the paunch? Under the paunch? Straddle the paunch? Look, little tie- you decide. I’ve got other fish to fry. Whats that Flawless Wanda, you don’t have a paunch? Well, Vogue says you’re easy- so take that!
This is a mix of 2 fabrics that leapt at me from the closet- they may have just needed air, but I put them together anyway. A pintucked coton in a green that my liver avoids, but I just love. A striped motif challis. Lord I love challis- oh, its like my 8th grade crush- I never get over the butterflies when I see a challis sale!
So I’d hoped for some lovely outdoor pics and a little sun and summer atmosphere, but for some reason the dogs freaked out on eachother during supper time and I ended up feeding one on the bed- because his sisters ganged up on him while he was eating. So pictures before the evening thunderstorm are in my boudoir with me giving the stink eye to my rowdy german hounds.
No zipper needed for this sexy pyramid- after numerous basted try-ons, I just skipped it. I love the column feel to this, but I can’t help feeling like:
Also, has anyone mentioned that it feels like it’s drifting backward? I have slopy shoulders, so I’m not used to that!
These dogs- I swear- I cannot find my inner Goddess muse with them fighting and throwing toys?!
