But I am not going to sew this dress. Look, it's simple, the pockets replicate what my hips are already doing. The short sleeves would highlight the fat part of my arms. The uneven hanging hem would drag me even closer to the ground (I'm 5'1" or 5' 2" on good day). I have a curvaceous shape and I'm muscular. I kid you not guys...I used to buck hay, I have run a log splitter, I have ridden 30+ miles many times on Woodrow. So, I really do look best in clothing which highlights the feminine and downplays the "tomboy". This dress would hide my assets.
Notice how S 2369 (red geometric wrap top) follows my shape while hiding those drooping hips? Better choice.
V 8390 is also a wrap top but a tad more fitted. Also a better choice.
One of the changes which come with age is the clarity to know what you want to wear and how you want to present yourself. I love slouchy beach tees, and lagenlook clothing. I can wear these things in small doses. For me, the key to loose clothing is to wear a fitted piece along with it. And that little rule which I want to follow won't work with V 8813.
How does this epiphany affect you? I know there is someone out there who would love to sew this dress, and could rock the look. If you are interested in this FREE pattern, please comment below. I'll close the giveaway on Sunday at 11:59 Pacific, and draw a name at random on Monday am.
