Yesterday I wore a dress that I made a year ago and never wore. The fabric was from Vogue Fabrics. I even purchased red shoes to wear with it at that time. I was not overly pleased with the dress. The neckline and collar seemed off for me. Yesterday AM I decided I would wear the dress.
Upon arriving at work, I began getting compliments right away. I, of course, thanked everyone as they also asked if I had made it.
I think part of the issue for my not wearing it is that it reminds me of a red/white gingham dress worn by little girls, or at least little girls from my memory bank. It also makes me think of a tablecloth.
One thing that I had not finished with the dress was sewing a red button at the collar. I have now misplaced that red button. I decided to use a pin (brooch) from my collection that belonged either to my mother or grandmother. I even got compliments on that.
I took a few photos with my iPhone before leaving work yesterday morning. Thus the following are not great photos of the dress. I had no other photos than ones of the dress hanging on a hanger. Soooooo....
Tomorrow I begin a staycation!!!! I do plan to do some sewing over the weekend with concentration on more sewing next week. DH and I have some spring cleaning chores to do for the weekend.
