And just in time for Pantsapalooza!
So here it is, my Tiramisu dress and its chocolately color inspiration.
There's not too much to say about the pattern that hasn't been said by scores of bloggers. I'm happy with the fit, overall, now that I tweaked the bodice. It's probably not as deep of a V as it would have been otherwise, but I feel like I can comfortably wear this for teaching and church and such and not feel like people are looking at my chest, so that's good. And I do think the solid chocolate brown was a good move. I'm also happy to have something I can wear these (barely seen) yellow beaded earrings with, because there's not much in my closet that goes with them.
And here's a slightly blurry side view, in which my husband was getting creative with posing, and probably a more accurate color assessment. (My weekend is entirely booked, between work and church and music-related things, so I have no idea when I'd be able to get a natural light shot. Thus the indoor pics.)
I also finished trimming and pinning up the third hem of my friend's wedding dress today, which will be a hand-sewing job, in preparation for busy work during tonight's episode of Project Runway.
I also realized that today is 7 years since I wrote my first post on here. Crazy, right?
