It was going to be worn for a birthday party- it even made it out of the house ON me, unfortunately to be put back in the cupboard after i had a wee panicky/anxiety attack on the way to the party, rendering me useless and needing to go home.
So I decided it was cursed! (And didn't really have anywhere to wear it till now anyway).
But today was a special event, a 'lungiversary' for a special friend, so I pulled it out. Ooh, lovely!
Look closer...by the end of the day, I just wanted to get home and rip it off! It seems I've now put on a bit of weight around the upper arm, and those bust darts were never right, I don't think. I'm calling them the 'headlights' haha.
Standing, walking etc are fine, but sitting and definitely driving mean I still have a red mark on my arm! 'A bit toight' I would say!
I *swear* I was standing straight and tall during this pic too, so when I saw this- ugh!
So, a disappointing result. The fabric is lovely, a silk/cotton. I enjoyed the process of making it, and learnt lots of techniques. So I'll try 'gifting' it to whoever steps over the doorway, be warned! hehe.
