Grey Circles Dress

So, while meandering aimlessly (okay that's not true, my aim was to buy something fun!) through Fabricland, I came upon the sale section, as per usual. I looooove a good deal. I came across this beautiful fabric, which was 75% off! That put it down to $2.75 a metre. It was lovely in every way - a great pattern, silky to the touch, quite unique.... but it was a stretch knit. I have not made clothes with a fabric like this before. If you'll notice, almost everything I've ever sewn is with a cotton of some sort.

Do I dare???

I dared. And it wasn't flawless. And it wasn't easy. But after using WAY more pins than I was used to, and winging and shaping it as I go, I came up with this dress.

I wanted scrunched up shoulders, and a flat straight across neckline.

The dress flows really nicely, and hides the curves I don't want seen while showing just at the part of my leg that will make me look taller.

I got kinda bored, and started being a goofball. :o)

The "Cousin It", The "Hair Stand", The "Pokahontas",

The "Treasure Troll", The "Vogue Look", and the "Help I'm Being Blown Away!!"

*giggle* I love strobe lighting. Fun Fun. ;o)
