Sewcie Tea Dress – Plan A, Plan B & now Plan C
Well, I toiled the dress weeks ago, and when I got back to it last weekend, I realised I didn’t really ‘love’ it. No wonder I’d been procrastinating!
Plan B was soon hatched. A shift dress is a flattering for my body type, and I was dying to try Colette’s new Laurel dress.
Doesn’t it look lovely? Hang on a minute, where is the bias trim on the neckline and the sleeves? Why isn’t it finished? That’s right readers, it DOESN’T FIT (too small in the bust). I should have made that third toile, but instead, due to perceived time restraints, I cut into some lovely Liberty. Needless to say, this dress will not be finished. It will be taken apart and made into something for one of my girls. I haven’t given up on this pattern yet, as I think it has lots of potential, but I will get back to it another time.
Then late last night Plan C was hatched. Wish me luck, I’m off to cut out the dress now. That Sunday 2pm event deadline is looming…
By the way, if this next make fails, and I don’t have high hopes for it, then I’m going to have to pull out my mustard Lily Linen Dress and face that fact I haven’t managed to make anything new that is wearable for this event. Such is life.
