Remember this dress? I couldn't leave well enough alone and a few weeks ago I went ahead with the embroidery around the neck and pockets. I do like it, it adds a certain something.
I keep thinking the pockets needed a bigger punch though, like rosettes or huge colorful flowers or something. But then I kept wondering if calling that much attention to my hips was a good thing.
I have more plans for Simplicity 3835, oh, yes. I'm going to make a peasant blouse and a dress with the peasant neckline from some IKEA yardage I have.
I've also been industriously wacking up my bootcut jeans, which I suddenly feel weird wearing. I remember thinking I'd always feel wonderful in them no matter where the trends went. I guess I am, in fact, a mindless slave to the whims of fashion. I'm making some into straight jeans and some into capris or shorts for the summer.
