For the moment I have given up on the wardrobe challenge. Every time I plan one, I get frustrated and/or bored. I need to stop trying to do these. I sew one piece at a time as the mood strikes me...I am so NOT a planner ;-)
All I could think about yesterday was sewing this dress but I kept trying to make myself sew something in my plan. Well, I gave in and started on this dress.
The pattern calls for stretch woven and this was the only fabric in a stretch woven I had enough of. I do like it though. It's kind of willy nilly circles.
So far it's really been fun to make. This is a straight 16 with no FBA. I don't think I needed one with all the extra fabric in the front. It does look a bit long waisted on me (I am SUPER short waisted) but I think it will be fine once I get the belt on right. My fabric is not the same on both sides so the wrong side shows on the belt. I think I an just going to stitch the belt in half lengthwise and turn it right side out. Being so short waisted I don't need such a wide belt.
