I knew I was taking a break, but I didn't think it was a month-long break!!
Anyway, here are my latest and greatest, completed on July 4 and 5, respectively.
I've wanted a lightweight, summery tunic for a while and when I spotted this tomato red crepe on sale at the store, I knew I had to have it.
The finished garment hits the top of the thigh and is perfect as a coverup or simply with some jean shorts. Easy. Breezy.
And heh, the cost of materials was about $6, including the gold ric-rac I added at the neckline for some pizzazz. Hey, one might still be at the beach, but one can still be glam.
Of course, I have also purchased a chocolate brown crepe, but I will not be making the same pattern, I have plans for that chocolate crepe, and of course, I shall share same when the time is right.
I've tried taking a bazillion photos of this dress and it just does not come out right, just like the previous dress I made of this pattern. It figures, my favorite dress pattern, and I can't get a decent shot. Arg.
There is a wide waistband with ruching so it's really flattering and it doesn't show at all with the bold purple print of the fabric, so I just took a picture of the fabric itself, you can see some of the ruching I did at the top, it's a gorgeous fabric, very cool and comfortable to wear.
As soon as this fricking 100+ degree weather cools down, I will find a reason to wear this sweet dress.
And for reference, this (left) is the picture on the pattern envelope. It's a very flattering pattern, a v-neck to hint at the lovely bosom, the ruched waistband to conceal any blubbery tummy troubles, and the graceful skirt. Gorgeous all around.
